"As a provider working in an FQHC, I find the morbidity and complexity of our patient population extremely challenging. The ECHO series have enabled me to manage some of these complex cases with more confidence and provide better care to members of the community. These programs offer a comprehensive overview including an integrated approach spanning pharmacology, social services, and behavioral health. This integrated approach aligns perfectly with the clinic we strive to create for members of our community."
