Rare Bone Disease TeleECHO Clinic Series
The Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation and the Rare Bone Disease Alliance are excited to announce the Rare Bone Disease TeleECHO Clinic Series. The goal of this educational program, a partnership with Project ECHO™ (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes), is to build capacity to safely and effectively diagnose and treat rare bone diseases and disorders.
The full schedule with links to register for specific session topics is listed below. Participants can also sign up to receive program reminders and updates here.
This series uses Zoom video conferencing and will take place on the first Thursday of every month at 3pm EST. In each monthly session, faculty members or guest speakers present a brief didactic presentation, followed by participant-led case presentations and group discussion of the presented cases. The faculty encourages participants to present case studies related to rare bone diseases at each session. Recordings of each didactic presentation are posted after each session.
The Rare Bone TeleECHO Clinic Series is intended for medical professionals and clinicians who treat patients with rare bone diseases to improve their differential diagnosis skills and provide up-to-date evaluation and management strategies. Click here to view the program flyer.
