ECHO PFAS Series

This series is based on Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) strategies. It is an innovative tele-mentoring program designed to create virtual communities of learners by bringing together healthcare providers and subject matter experts using videoconference technology, brief lecture presentations, and case-based learning, fostering an “all learn, all teach” approach.  

Participants are engaged in the bi-directional virtual knowledge network by sharing clinical challenges and learning from experts and peers.  

During an ECHO session, participants present real (anonymized) cases to the specialists—and each other—for discussion and recommendations. Participants learn from one another, as knowledge is tested and refined through a local lens. https://hsc.unm.edu/echo/what-we-do/about-the-echo-model.html

Each participant will earn one CE for attending each session. There is no cost for participating in any of the sessions.
