This Saturday (July 6, 2024), Dianna’s team will be live-streaming a day in her life, showcasing what it’s like for her to suffer from from Long COVID and ME/CFS. The livestream will be viewable on the PhysicsGirl YouTube channel from 6:45 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific time).

Co-hosted by Ian Hecox and Simone Giertz, the event will feature pre-recorded expert interviews and in-depth discussions about Dianna’s journey. While Dianna won’t be speaking during the livestream – she will be in bed, mostly awake, resting as she does daily – viewers can learn from the interviews and discussions, hear Kyle, Simone and Ian answer your questions, and of course, see Dianna.
