The Hepatitis C ECHO Programs are designed to enhance clinicians ability to screen, treat and manage patients with hepatitis C through didactic and case presentations, recommendations from peers and a multidisciplinary team of specialists, and offer the opportunity to become part of a learning community. Together, we will manage patient cases so every patient receives the care they deserve. Sessions are open to all. See ECHO registration information for each program below. View past ECHO sessions >
