Hurricane Response Hub Project ECHO: Environmental Health Communication Strategies in a Hurricane Emergency Event

Series Description

Join us for the next Project ECHO series on active communication strategies for environmental health issues in a hurricane emergency event. Through the use of video conferencing technology, the Project ECHO model provides environmental health professionals opportunities to engage with subject matter experts, participate in peer-to-peer learning, and share experiences from environmental health hurricane responses.

The six-session ECHO series will support public health professionals with optimizing their public outreach, diversity engagement and use of communication media to better manage environmental health challenges.

The series will be offered in early 2020. Session descriptions will be coming soon. Certificates of completion will be available to participants who attend all six one-hour sessions.


The series is designed for individuals working in state, regional, or local health departments and public health or hurricane preparedness, response, or recovery organizations. Our geographic priority areas includes Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, and Puerto Rico. However, other jurisdictions/locations will be considered as space is available, so we encourage all who are interested to sign up.
