Program Information

This program meets on the first and third Friday of every month from 12-1pm ET / 9-10am PT.

Weitzman ECHO Childhood Trauma connects primary care medical, behavioral health, and school-based health providers to expert faculty from primary care and school-based settings to improve care for youth experiencing trauma. At each of the 18 ECHO sessions, didactic presentations are first delivered by the ECHO's expert faculty, and then participating providers present and discuss their real patient cases to assist providers to better care for children, adolescents, and their families. This ECHO is a longer-term continuing education program to create a virtual community for providers and care team members to receive guidance from peers and experts throughout the 9-month program and beyond.
