How Participants Feel about ECHO

What Participants Say About ECHO

Benefits for me were collaborative efforts, fresh viewpoints, widening my scope of knowledge, introduction to/interaction with other members of the professional community, and sharing of resources and information.

Past MOUD ECHO Participant

I really enjoy this format for learning and mutual support. It's experiential, focuses on what's "real", permits some interaction, and is inclusive of diverse participants -- AND I get CME credit for attending.
