UNH is a Project ECHO Hub led by the UNH Institute for Health Policy and Practice, NH Citizens Health Initiative. All ECHOs operate through UNH’s Partnership for Academic-Clinical Practice (PACT), which is a partnership between NH Citizens Health Initiative, UNH College of Health and Human Services' academic departments and community partners (dictated by the ECHO topic/session).

The Project ECHO® model is an evidence-based method developed by researchers at the University of New Mexico that links interdisciplinary specialists with community-based practitioners using web conferencing technology. During teleECHO™ sessions, experts mentor and share their expertise across a virtual network via case-based learning, enabling practice teams to manage complex conditions in their own communities. 

The UNH Project ECHO Hub will help community-based providers grow their expertise without leaving their practices, and bring much needed services to patients throughout New Hampshire.
