May Workers’ Compensation Webinar – The Impact of Long COVID
The California JPIA will host its next Workers’ Compensation Webinar on Thursday, May 11, at 11:00 a.m. Attendees will learn about some of the challenges they and their employees may face with long COVID.
The webinar presenter will be Dr. Austin Apramian, a Board-Certified Internal Medicine Specialist and Co-Medical Director at St. George’s Medical Clinic in Pasadena. Dr. Apramian and the team at St. George’s provide treatment to many Southern California municipalities, including several Authority members.
In addition to his education at the Western University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in Pomona, Dr. Apramian brings a unique skill set to the treatment of COVID. When the World Health Organization officially declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic in March 2020, Dr. Apramian was actively working on the frontlines in the ICU at Adventist Health White Memorial Hospital. In early 2021, he served as the medical provider overseeing the emergency COVID-19 vaccination program at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He has since transitioned to an outpatient setting at St. George’s Medical Clinic, where he treats various COVID-related illnesses. This has allowed Dr. Apramian to develop a comprehensive understanding of treating this unprecedented viral illness.
We look forward to having you join us on May 11. Register here. For those unavailable to attend the live webinar, a recording will be available on the Authority’s website. For any questions, please contact Jeff Rush, workers’ compensation program manager.< Back to Full Issue Print Article
