Project ECHO

We’re excited to join Project ECHO as a hub to deliver case-based learning for primary care providers. This allows Future Health Today to develop a series of live, online collaborative education and information sessions in which disease specialists can support on-the-ground practitioners to manage complex patients. The hub and spoke model brings best practice care to the front line and enables faster intervention at the community level.
