Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a collaborative model of medical education and care management that seeks to empower clinicians everywhere to provide better care to more people, right where they live. The focus of this ECHO project is to provide enhanced diabetes, lipid, obesity and lipid knowledge to clinicians that will allow them to improve cardiometabolic care to patients in underserved areas in Washington state.

Through participation in telemedicine conferences with specialists, this project provides primary care clinicians and other health care providers (PA, ARNP, RN), access to specialists. The format is a series of 18 virtual conferences, each about 1-1.15 hours. Each conference includes about 30 minutes of didactic presentation(s) and 30 minutes with community provider case discussion and Q&A. The educational methods include these lectures, mentored guidance in treatment principles and one-on-one support if needed. The live content will be recorded for future viewing to those for credit (if unable to participate in the live offering).
