Dr. Peter Spencer presents on COVID-19 and the brain

We invite you to join us as we listen to Dr. Peter Spencer co-present the May 19, 2021 OHSU Brain Awareness Lecture COVID-19 and the Brain: What do we know?

Dr. Spencer will join Juliette Preston, M.D., to share an overview of what both international and local OHSU communities are doing to track the full-body effects of COVID-19, particularly on the brain. Following their presentation, they will be joined by Jacqueline Bernard, M.D., and Andrew Natonson, M.D., in a panel discussion on what we know about COVID-19, the nervous system, and what it might do in the brain. Viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions of our expert panelists.

This virtual event is scheduled from 4:00-5:30 pm Pacific Time. Learn more and register at the Brain Institute event webpage.
