Run Your Own ECHO Programs

Starting an ECHO program (referred to as "replicating" or "replication") begins by becoming an official ECHO replication partner, by following these four steps: Explore, Agree, Learn, and Plan and Launch  There is never a fee to become a replication partner or to replicate the ECHO model.

The number of worldwide replication partners grows every year and focuses on a growing number of ECHOs for a variety of issues. ECHO replication partners continuously find innovative ways of leveraging the ECHO model to amplify their impact and increase capacity in their specialty fields and in their communities.

Step One: Explore

Explore what is possible using the ECHO model to see if it can work for your local needs and resources. Our monthly 90-minute virtual ECHO Introduction is a great opportunity to be introduced to the ECHO model, learn how it started, interact with others investigating ECHO, and meet members of the ECHO team.

Join us using the Zoom platform to hear Project ECHO's founder, Dr. Sanjeev Arora, present the models, followed by 45-minutes of discussion and Q&A.
