Michael Haller, M.D., professor and chief of the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology in the UF College of Medicine, and Ashby Walker, Ph.D., director of health equity Initiatives at the UF Diabetes Institute, lead the ECHO Diabetes project in Florida. Their webinar will be an "ECHO Diabetes Update".
ECHO Diabetes aims to help primary care physicians in Florida and California attain a greater level of expertise on diabetes by addressing the racial, socioeconomic and geographic disparities affecting outcomes for these patients. Participating health care providers receive virtual training and tele-education from the diabetes “hubs” at UF and Stanford. The physicians also get real-time help with challenging medical decision-making issues from diabetes professionals at UF Health.
