Our ECHO Public Health Programs

Two of our initial ECHO series were led by the Hurricane Response Hub, a program of our Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery portfolio, focused on emergency preparedness through communications strategies and workforce resilience.

Environmental Health Communication Strategies in a Hurricane Emergency Event

In this six-session ECHO series, participants discussed environmental health challenges associated with hurricanes through the lens of communication strategies. Presenters and panelists supported thought leadership and partnership development to guide participants in establishing action plans that will optimize their public outreach, community engagement, and use of communication media.

Individual and Workforce Resilience – Before, During, and After a Prolonged Hurricane Emergency

In this six-session ECHO series, participants addressed resilience by learning to facilitate individual and workforce strategies focused on managing stressors induced by prolonged hurricane emergencies.

Conducting Successful CHA/CHIPs Virtually During COVID-19 

In this series designed for public health performance improvement professionals, participants discussed various facets of the community health assessment and community health improvement plan process, including equity-centric community engagement, data sharing, consensus building, and collaborative planning.
