Hearty congratulations to HSR investigator Ziyad Al-Aly, MD, who was named one of the TIME100 Most Influential People in Health!

Dr. Al-Aly, a clinical epidemiologist, is the Chief of Research and Development at the VA St. Louis Health Care System in Missouri. Since 2020, he has published nearly 20 studies on COVID-19’s long-term health effects, which can range from debilitating fatigue and brain fog to heart trouble and depression. Prior to 2020, much of Dr. Al-Aly’s work focused on pharmacoepidemiology and environmental epidemiology.

TIME100 Health recognizes the impact, innovation, and achievement of the world’s most influential individuals in health. TIME lists Dr. Al-Aly as a “pioneer” who advocates for patients through his research, which TIME says has “helped shape the world’s newfound understanding of the long-term effects of COVID-19.”
