CHW Affiliates Study Pandemic’s Impact on Asian American Health, Long Covid

Nov. 17, 2023

As Covid-19 remains a threat to public health, CHW affiliates have continued research efforts to determine how the virus has left a lasting impact on individuals and populations worldwide. Noreen Goldman, the Hughes-Rogers Professor of Demography and Public Affairs, examined the impact of Covid-19 on life expectancy among four Asian American subgroups from 2019-2021. Heather Howard, a professor of the practice at SPIA and co-director of the Center for Health and Wellbeing’s Global Health Program, co-authored an article sharing policy proposals drawn from past disaster responses that could be used for those still experiencing Covid-related symptoms.
