The Pediatric Genetics ECHO aims to improve access to genetic 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 genetic conditions. Using case-based learning and brief didactics along with interactive video technology, our PG ECHO program connects groups of community providers with genetic specialists 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.
The PG ECHO meeting is hosted on the Zoom video conferencing platform. It is held every 1st and 3rd Thursday from 12 p.m.-1 p.m. CDT. Providers will receive case submission links once they have registered as a participant.
