The ECHO MS: International Pediatric Program Kicks Off April 17, 2023


The National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s CME program follows Project ECHO’s evidence-based telementoring model and establishes a peer-to-peer knowledge sharing network.

On Monday, April 17, 2023, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) will kick off its first session of the pediatric multiple sclerosis (MS) portion of its ECHO MS continuing medical education (CME) program. This program, designed to foster international collaboration and increase expertise in pediatric MS and related demyelinating disease, will ultimately include 3 sessions this year.

The session begins at 10:30 AM Eastern Time, and like its pair of companion virtual grand rounds later in the year, will run for 90 minutes. The program follows the evidence-based Project ECHO guided-practice model for reducing health disparities and improving patient outcomes—and can earn participants up to 4.5 CME credits. Each ECHO MS session features a brief didactic and 2 case discussions.

The ECHO MS: International Pediatric hub is guided by 2 directors, Cheryl Hemingway, MBChB, PhD, MMed, FRCPCH, FCPaed, a consultant pediatric neurologist at Great Ormond Street Hospital, in London, England; and Brenda L. Banwell, MD, chief of the Division of Neurology and coirector of the Neuroscience Center, and Grace R. Loeb Endowed Chair in Neurosciences, at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, in Pennsylvania.

The NMSS developed ECHO MS to increase the capacity of neurologists and other healthcare providers to diagnose and manage individuals with MS. The following 2 pediatric meetings are scheduled for June 2023 and September 2023.
