Please join the West Virginia Primary Care Association (WVPCA) as we have partnered with the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) to conduct a four-part ECHO peer learning series for West Virginia school and health center nurses. 

Session 1 - August 26th (Wednesday): Clinical Guidance | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Session 2 - September 9th (Wednesday): Communication with Families and Children | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM  

Session 3 - September 22nd (Tuesday): Childhood Trauma, Obesity, and Lifestyle Change | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Session 4 - October 6 (Tuesday): Partnerships, Referrals, and Care Coordination | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The WVPCA and the NNCC conducted a Town Hall in May to begin identifying issues in diabetes management and prevention in youth.  The information gathered has been used in the development of these four ECHO opportunities that support the care that is being provided to those with diabetes as well as diabetes prevention efforts. 

Participants are encouraged to attend all four sessions and submit cases from their clinical experience for discussion among the group.

Objectives for this Nurse-Led Diabetes Prevention ECHO:
  • Learners will improve communication between schools, school-based health centers, and community-based health centers.
  • Learners will identify tangible next steps to reduce prediabetes among elementary school-aged children.
  • Learners will develop a multi-disciplinary, nuanced approach to addressing diabetes risk that includes communication with patients, families, and fellow practitioners.
TARGET AUDIENCE: This event is intended for SBHC staff and school nurses.
