Mississippi Pediatric Pandemic Education Network Webinar (MSPPEN)

Pediatric pandemic training with CEU credit for primary care providers 

The Mississippi Pediatric Pandemic Education Network (MSPPEN) webinar aims to improve access to COVID-19 services for children across the state of Mississippi by increasing the knowledge and confidence of primary care providers to identify, evaluate, and manage individuals with COVID-19 and its associated syndromes and infection prevention measures. Using didactic sessions along with interactive video technology, our MSPPEN webinar program will connect groups of community providers with infectious diseases specialists as well as other specialists with expertise in caring for children with COVID-19 and its associated conditions at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in real-time collaborative sessions.

The Project ECHO® model was developed by the University of New Mexico and has been utilized across the United States and globally to increase capacity to safely and effectively treat chronic, common, and complex diseases whilst dedicating themselves to de-monopolizing knowledge to expand access to best-practice medical care.

MSPPEN Webinar topics include: 

  • Vaccine updates 
  • MIS-C 
  • COVID-19 strand tracking
