A Taste of eGNA: Now Expanding with Project ECHO

A Taste of eGNA: Now Expanding with Project ECHO

The Southeast Regional Genetics Network (SERN) is ready to launch its first Project ECHO platform for genetic disorders. Our first pilot project will focus on a multidisciplinary medical education approach focused on training genetic metabolic providers. We are currently recruiting for the Genetic Nutrition ECHO program which will launch in the fall of 2020. We hosted an ECHO methodology demonstration on Wednesday, April 29 where more than 300 genetic professionals, public health professionals, and other providers registered to learn more about Project ECHO. We had three case presenters from different institutions, active audience participation, and faculty experts who provided recommendations. If you are a genetic professional, currently seeing patients, we would like your help in completing the Genetic Nutrition ECHO Needs Assessment.

In addition, if you are interested in further educational opportunities, you will be directed to complete the Participant Interest Form after completing the needs assessment, which the ECHO team will use to enroll the first trainee cohort for the program and interested members will be provided with more details.
