Chagas disease is an infection with the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi (T. cruzi) and is endemic throughout the Americas. Often called a “silent killer”, this chronic disease can go undetected for years and even decades, resulting in irreversible damage or death. Unfortunately, less than 1% of known Chagas disease cases in the US have been diagnosed or received appropriate treatment.
The Chagas ECHO aims to address this critical treatment gap by convening a national group of Chagas disease experts to share knowledge about screening, surveillance, and treatment. Sessions run January through April, 2020. Register here.
