Early Insights on Long COVID, Chronic Illness, and Economic Well-Being
As we observe the 33rd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, we are just beginning to grapple with what long COVID may mean for economic and personal well-being. Join the Urban Institute’s Disability Equity Policy Initiative for a conversation with Meghan O’Rourke, author of the National Book Award finalist TheInvisible Kingdom: Reimagining Chronic Illness, alongside a panel of nationally recognized experts and advocates for a conversation about new research on long COVID’s impact on economic well-being and the need for policies that address chronic illness and disability.
