Hawai’i Learning Groups, LLC, was formed to continue a collaboration with Project ECHO® at the University of New Mexico. We started by continuing a curriculum centered on diabetes in Hawai’i and seek local collaborators to develop additional tracks. HLG has a goal to be part of the transformation and improvement of healthcare. The ECHO model provides a means to implement better evidence-based and patient-centered team care. HLG is a service organization that can help others develop curriculum and implement learning programs to meet the needs of their under-served and rural clients.
