The National MS Society recently partnered with Project ECHO, a global movement that connects community providers with specialists at centers of excellence using interactive video technology. Providers will earn CE credits and gain new skills in the diagnosis and management of multiple sclerosis and specialists will learn new approaches for applying their knowledge across diverse cultural and geographic contexts. We will launch ECHO MS later this year with plans to have 60 community neurologists and advance practice providers participate.
