Until further notice, we will NOT be holding adult sessions, which normally occur on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. This is to focus on research initiatives studying the impact of the Project ECHO method. However, we will continue hosting pediatric sessions on the second Tuesday of each month. Follow us on Twitter for schedule updates, or email info@liftecho.org for questions.

The LIFT-ECHO community mourns the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Douglas Seidner. Doug, to his many friends, was an internationally renowned expert in intestinal failure and nutritional support, patient, thoughtful, deliberate and always generous of his time, his deep intellect and his compassion. The intestinal failure community has lost a giant leader and a passionate educator.
