CDC COCA Call: Underlying Medical Conditions and Severe COVID-19: Evidence-based Information for Healthcare Providers

While age is the strongest risk factor for severe COVID-19 outcomes, studies have shown that COVID-19 does not affect all population groups equally. The risk of severe COVID-19 (e.g., hospitalization, admission to the intensive care unit (ICU), intubation or mechanical ventilation, death) increases with the number of underlying medical conditions.

During this COCA Call, presenters will update clinicians on the underlying medical conditions associated with severe COVID-19, describe the methods used to rate the evidence linking conditions to severe COVID-19, review the evidence on risk for conditions included, and provide resources for healthcare providers caring for patients with underlying medical conditions.

If you are unable to attend the live COCA Call, the recording will be available for viewing on the COCA Call webpage a few hours after the live event ends.

Free Continuing Education (CE) will be offered for this COCA Call.
