6 Week series: Thursday 14 July - 18 August
Thursdays at 8:00am (1 hour)
Open to all medical (including GPs and paediatricians), nursing and allied health professionals and all experience levels.

This six-part free series aims to deliver health professionals the knowledge and tools to increase their skills and confidence in raising the topic of weight with children and their families. It will also provide resources and effective ways to support children and families to build better health and lifestyle habits together.
Project ECHO is an interactive knowledge sharing model, with a focus on peer-to-peer learning, collaborative problem solving, and teaching. 
Each week participants log in to a Zoom session which consists of a short presentation from a panel expert, with a question time.  A case is then presented by a participant followed by an interactive discussion led by the panel facilitator.
