What is Project ECHO?

A collaborative model of medical education for health professionals that empowers nursing home team members, especially in rural communities, to provide specialty geriatric care to more people.

The format of an ECHO is a virtual case presentation presented by a community provider followed by a 15-minute didactic presented by an ECHO Hub Team. There is no cost to join an ECHO session.
