Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes

Project ECHO is a revolutionary guided-practice model that reduces health disparities in under-served and remote areas of the state, nation, and world. Through innovative telementoring, the ECHO model uses a hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing approach where expert teams lead virtual clinics, amplifying the capacity for providers to deliver best-in-practice care to the underserved in their own communities. Learn More

I have participated in Project ECHO as a presenter, a participant and I have sent in case studies for assistance. I have found all the ways I have interacted with Project ECHO to be beneficial to me; both as a school counselor and in my private practice. I am very thankful for the opportunity it provides for me to further my education on topics I am interested in, and for the help I have received through sending in case studies. As I am in a rural area, this outreach has been extremely beneficial.
