Transgender Health ECHO Currently Accepting Applications [Deadline next week!]

Attention FQHCs!  Currently accepting applications for the July 2019 – June 2020 program.  Due May 24!


Through the use of the groundbreaking Project ECHO model, TransECHO creates a network of health centers and faculty expertise to increase clinician access to knowledge and support needed to provide culturally responsible, comprehensive, primary care for transgender and gender non-conforming patients.

Hosted by the Fenway Institute, TransECHO is a monthly program which provides the opportunity to tap into the collaborative power of health center teams and public health experts. Clinics participating in TransECHO will have 12 months of free training, technical assistance, and coaching to learn to better serve their transgender and non-binary clients.

The learning objectives of TransECHO are:

    1.   Improve my ability and my organization’s ability to provide high-quality care for transgender and gender non-conforming patients.
    2.   Assess and expand my organization’s capacity to create an affirming environment for transgender and gender non-conforming patients.
    3.  Build relationships with other organizations that will facilitate peer learning experiences, both during the ECHO sessions and beyond.
    4.   Develop and refine strategies that enable my organization to collect and utilize sexual orientation and gender identity data to improve health services and patient outcomes.

Sessions occur the third Wednesday of every month from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm PST starting July 17, 2019. Federally-Qualified Health Centers and look-alike clinics are encouraged to apply.

Applications are due May 24.  Click here to apply.
