Project ECHO

Developed by The University of New Mexico, Project ECHO is a widely used best practice model that expands training and practitioner knowledge. The ECHO Model™ connects groups of community providers with specialists at centers of excellence in real-time collaborative sessions. As a result, our collective understanding of how to disseminate and implement best practices across diverse disciplines continuously improves and expands.
