We are currently in the process of developing a monthly pediatric LIFT-ECHO clinic, specifically designed to help pediatric patients with intestinal failure. In addition to our regular biweekly LIFT-ECHO sessions, we plan to hold a third Peds LIFT-ECHO on the second Tuesday of each month, which will focus on non-adult IF cases and didactics. Additional details on dates and topics to follow.
