About Cincinnati ECHO

Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a movement to diffuse knowledge and amplify the capacity to provide best practice care for underserved people all over the world. Project ECHO Cincinnati began in 2015 with chronic pain when the University of Cincinnati Department of Family & Community Medicine received grant funding from Pfizer Independent Grants for Learning & Change. After 3 years of running ECHO Chronic Pain, we've had the opportunity to expand our ECHO Hub to include ECHO Epilepsy/Neurology and ECHO MAT made possible through grants from the Epilepsy Foundation and Area Health Education Center, along with Anthem. Through this grant funding our Cincinnati ECHO team members have been able to attend the Project ECHO® Immersion Training, which has led to a greater appreciation and understanding of the ECHO model™.
