Out of an abundance of caution due to concerns for community spread of COVID-19, as well as the safety and wellbeing of all participants, we are temporarily canceling the planned ECHO: Guts in the City! originally planned for April 17 & 18. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience and hope you understand.

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.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our July 2020 sessions! Module 4 is off to a fantastic start. Roughly 120 clinicians from all around the world dialed in to this week's meeting, and a whopping 170 people attended the launch of our pediatric clinic! We are so happy and encouraged by these numbers.
If you were not able to be there, or would like to brush up on some of the material, the didactic presentations are available to view on the didactic archives page of our website.
On Tuesday, July 14th from 1-2pm we will be launching our FIRST pediatric LIFT-ECHO session! These meetings will focus on non-adult intestinal failure cases and didactics, and will be held each month on the second Tuesday of the month. In combination with our regular LIFT-ECHO clinic, this means that we will now be holding three sessions a month.
For more information on the pediatic didactics, view the Session Schedule page on our website or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
