Thank you for your interest in the American Academy of Pediatrics Disaster Recovery ECHO: Applying Lessons Learned During Disaster and Pandemic Recovery! This project is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under the cooperative agreements 5 NU38OT000282-03-00 and 5 NU38OT000282-04-00.

Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an innovative hub and spoke program, designed to create knowledge networks by connecting health care providers with an expert team through a tele-mentoring program using brief lectures and case‐based presentations. These networks have been shown to increase capacity for health care providers to identify, treat, and manage patient care. Using basic, widely available teleconferencing technology, clinical management tools, and case‐based learning, health care providers develop knowledge and self‐efficacy on techniques for management of care and quality improvement. A 1-hour ECHO session consists of a short lecture (approx. 10-15 minutes) followed by a case or scenario-based presentation (5 minutes) and discussion. More information about ECHO may be found at

The AAP Disaster Recovery ECHO will serve as a forum for pediatric primary providers, hospitalists, and public health/Emergency Medical Services personnel to increase knowledge of disaster recovery principles and to provide peer support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic recovery effort.

The ECHO sessions will be conducted 2x per month for 1-hour combining both a brief lecture presentation and de-identified, in-depth practice or scenario-based cases. The anticipated launch date for the Disaster Management ECHO is September 2021.

All ECHO sessions occur virtually using Zoom video conference technology. Participants are expected to join using video as this makes for a more interactive and impactful session. Only the lecture presentations are recorded for both synchronous and asynchronous observations.

Registration will be accepted on a rolling basis with first come, first served.
