COVID-19 has forever changed our lives. While COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, it has impacted brain health in many ways due to the isolation and loneliness many have experienced as well as the pathological changes the virus can impose upon the body. Dr. Diaz Santos will discuss the way that our lives with COVID-19 has affected brain health as well as dementia diagnosis and treatment.
