The ECHO. Fueled by passion and vision.
We are ECHO Colorado, a team of clinical and public health professionals who realize the power of sharing knowledge across miles and across disciplines. We exist to improve health and wellness throughout our state and beyond. We bring health professionals with a diversity of viewpoints together to share ideas and learn from one another.
ECHO Colorado is where treatment, prevention, wellness, technology, sharing and learning converge, and this is the team that helps make it happen.
