ECHO Idaho | COVID-19 Program Delivering Crucial Information To Idaho's Healthcare Workforce

ECHO Idaho’s COVID-19 series cuts through national headlines and provides a platform for Idaho’s clinicians to learn dependable information about the disease and how it may impact routine activities such as travel, school, and visiting with friends and family. Connect with top experts and frontline colleagues from across the state to hear advice that can be applied immediately. Each session provides participants with an update and interpretation of Idaho’s COVID-19 numbers, an opportunity to ask questions about diagnosis and treatment of coronavirus through a case review and help identifying helpful resources statewide.

When

Virtual sessions meet 1st and 3rd Tuesdays each month from noon to 1 p.m. Mountain time. Register for ongoing sessions to receive log-on information direct to your inbox.
