Adolescent Health ECHO Accepting Applications

The School-Based Health Alliance, with funding from the Bureau of Primary Health Care National Cooperative Agreement (NCA), is accepting applications for its Adolescent Health ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) program. Through eight, 1.5-hour, CE-accredited sessions, the Adolescent Health ECHO program joins colleagues nationwide in learning more about adolescent health in an innovative tele-mentoring model of health care education. Lead by a multidisciplinary team of adolescent health providers and professionals, providers and staff participate in bi-weekly virtual sessions of evidence-based didactics and patient case presentations.

Participants and faculty will explore a number of topics centered on Adolescent Friendly Environments, Preventive Well Care, Behavioral Health, and Sexual/Reproduction Health. Such topics include creating an adolescent-centered experience, risk assessment counseling, opioid use disorders, and inclusive and affirming care.  Each session combines brief evidence-based didactics from faculty with de-identified case presentations from participants. All adolescent health providers and staff can participate at no cost.

Please share this opportunity with your primary care and behavioral health providers. See the latest Youth Safety Net project update on our website for more details and to apply!  The application deadline is Friday, 29 November.  Please direct questions to Seleena Moore, MPH at (202) 370-4383 or smoore@sbh4all.org.
