Infectious Diseases in the News
ECHO Idaho’s Infectious Diseases in the News series provides a virtual platform for clinicians and public health professionals to understand and interpret the most up-to-date information about emerging infectious disease topics, such as COVID-19, antibiotic resistance and more.
Led by an interdisciplinary panel of experts specializing in infectious diseases, internal medicine, pharmacy, public health and medical education, this series helps participants learn and implement best practices for treating patients by engaging in interdisciplinary conversations and case-based learning. These hour-long, virtual sessions are a convenient and interactive form of learning designed to be immediately applied to your current practice.
To view session recordings for this series, please visit ECHO Idaho's YouTube channel.
Noon to 1 p.m. Mountain time, first and third Tuesdays.
Third Tuesdays only in June and July.

The Infectious Diseases in the News series equips learners from all medical disciplines, including primary care providers (MD, DO, PA, NP, RN, PharmD), healthcare administrators, and public health professionals, with strategies to address the most current infectious diseases to make headlines.
