Indiana COVID-19 Response ECHO

The Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health ECHO Center at IUPUI uses Project ECHO to share knowledge and best practices across practices and communities. ECHO uses web-based Zoom videoconferencing to allow participants to get real-time answers to their questions.

Indiana COVID-19 Response ECHO sessions are Wednesdays from 8:00-9:15am ET. They will be hosted weekly for 6 weeks (and longer, if needed). 

The Indiana COVID-19 Response ECHO will feature public health and clinical leadership that will share perspectives and best practices for addressing COVID-19 in Indiana communities during the evolving pandemic. Curriculum topics for this program will include: Infection Control Practices, Expanding Telehealth Services, Screening and Protocols for Testing, and much more! All members of the healthcare team or individuals responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in their community are welcome to join.
