Sickle Cell Disease TeleECHO Clinic

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an internationally recognized telementoring innovation that build clinician knowledge in diagnosing and treating complex disorders. Project ECHO connects local clinicians with experts from sickle cell centers to learn skills necessary to deliver high quality sickle cell disease care using this proven telementoring model. 

As part of our HRSA-funded regional collaborative, we will host a SCD TeleECHO clinic every third Friday of the month from 11am-12pm (CST). During each session, an expert on sickle cell care will share a short didactic on a relevant topic. This will be followed by a case presentation and group discussion.

All healthcare providers who currently treat or are interested in treating patients with SCD are encouraged to participate. Please join us! If you are interested in participating, please email

Didactic videos are available below
