Clinical Perspectives in Rheumatoid Arthritis: Quality of Life, Comorbidities, and Evolving Targets: TeleECHO Series

Friday, September 04, 2020

12:00PM – 1:00PM ET

Please note this TeleECHO program is 12:00PM Eastern, 11:00AM, Central, 10:00AM Mountain and 9:00AM Pacific.

Program Features:

Project ECHO® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increases workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its expansive knowledge-sharing network, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, ECHO® fosters problem solving and interactive case discussion amongst doctors, nurses, and other clinicians, imparting invaluable insight to providing excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.

The Project ECHO® format fosters dialogue and asking any questions you may have on the topic or a patient case in a HIPAA compliant manner is encouraged.
