This 1-year project, a COVID-19 Enhancement to our existing 2-year project TransFORWARD: Creating a Statewide Transgender-Powered Research Collaborative in Texas, used the Texas Health Institute’s Project ECHO Replication Hub’s capacity. Our goal was to better understand how the transgender and gender diverse community is coping with the COVID-19 pandemic in Texas. Project ECHO, a University of New Mexico program, is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increases workforce and research capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct community sessions.
This project is funded through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (EA #10671).
