As we await exciting new developments, we will NOT be holding adult sessions until further notice. Adult sessions normally occur on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. We will continue hosting pediatric sessions on the second Tuesday of each month! Please watch this space for news on scheduling updates, or email info@liftecho.org for questions.

As many of you know, we're always on the lookout for cases for our sessions! Presenting cases is one of the most effective ways to not only learn, but to save lives!!

If you or a colleague is interested in presenting, kindly fill out our Case Study Inquiry Form and a member of our team will reach out. Filling out the form will only take a minute of your time, if that, and does NOT commit you to presenting. It is simply a way to find out more information.
