Toxicology ECHO: Combining Distance Learning with Telehealth
Upstate New York Poison Center’s Toxicology ECHO Project
The mission of Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is to develop the capacity to safely and effectively treat chronic, common, and complex diseases in rural and underserved areas and to monitor the outcomes of this treatment.
In partnering with Project ECHO our goal for the Upstate New York Poison Center’s Toxicology teleECHO is to assist clinicians who lack access to medical and clinical toxicologists by addressing new and emerging trends in drug use and substance abuse; complications of pharmaceutical and over-the-counter drugs; as well as environmental threats to our communities. Instructional presentations and case discussions will stimulate meaningful conversation and create an environment where we all learn.
Our Toxicology teleECHO clinics happen at different times throughout the year. Stay up-to-date on days by signing up for our new newsletter.
NEXT ECHO: November 21st, 2023, at 12:00 p.m. on "Emerging Social Media Trends"
FUTURE DATES: Second Tuesday every other month; 12-1 p.m. starting in January
