ECHO training for CHWs is one of the most in-demand modules offered

ECHO Digital Training

The Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) model uses technology to leverage scarce resources, share best practices and teach participants how to better evaluate and monitor their patient outcomes. Project ECHO is a hub and spoke educational model that connects specialists in academic medical centers (“hubs”) to community health workers in rural and underserved communities (“spokes”) via digital workshops and videoconferencing.

The format is designed to be a conversation, using an all-teach, all-learn model aimed at democratizing knowledge.
