We are developing two additional intestinal failure ECHO projects: a Pediatric LIFT-ECHO, and a Masterclass LIFT-ECHO. Each will be held once a month, on the weeks in between LIFT-ECHO.

As of June 18th, LIFT-ECHO has held a total of four clinics, which means we are officially halfway through our first 8-session module! So far, the enthusiasm we’ve received from our spokes has far exceeded our expectations.
