Our study focuses on the social implications and role of healthcare accessibility in the treatment of Long-Haul COVID-19, specifically in the rural setting. Referred to as Long COVID, this chronic condition broadly covers a variety of symptoms experienced by those long after the initial recovery from acute sickness with COVID-19; and it is now recognized with an ICD-10 code classification. Anecdotal evidence shows a lack of social support, empathy, and resources available for individuals suffering from Long COVID in rural areas. Based on a multi-disciplinary standardized patient experience, the project focuses on social needs requiring intervention and the manner in which different scopes of medical professionals can target these issues.
