Voices of RECOVER Atlanta

Dr. Marjorie Roberts served as the National Community Engagement Member and locally as our Atlanta Patient Liaison. She leverages her voice as an advocate of Long COVID, sharing her personal experiences and speaking on behalf of those impacted by Long COVID.

“I was the voice for the voiceless. I knew so much was happening to myself and other people. I had to tell the world,” Dr. Roberts states regarding her support of the RECOVER Initiative. Her experiences are representative of so many living with Long COVID in that she has endured so many changes in her life since her diagnosis. Long COVID is real, impacting an estimate of millions of Americans. Dr. Roberts states, “COVID took over so many people’s lives and when I saw what has happening, I couldn’t just let that happen.”

When asked what advice she has for anyone living with Long COVID, Dr. Roberts states, “Don’t suffer in silence.” She also encourages seeking therapy for those in need of an outlet. Dr. Roberts has since stepped down from her position locally and nationally, but her voice remains an influence of RECOVER Atlanta’s mission.
