The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved was pleased to join presenters Dr. Elizabeth Clewett of Project ECHO and Sarah Dixon of the Iowa Primary Care Association to provide both national and state level perspectives and experience with the Project ECHO model.
The webinar illuminates how advances in health are not reaching populations equally, as rural communities lose access to care and BIPOC populations face poorer outcomes and excess costs due to health inequities. In response to this, the Project ECHO model seeks to build capacity and create connections between specialist teams of doctors and primary care to benefit patients in underserved communities. Initially focused on the prevention and treatment of Hepatitis C, this innovative model has grown to encompass a variety of areas, from behavioral health and opioid use disorder treatment to pediatrics and trauma-informed care.
