Hawai’i Learning Groups is a partner with Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes). Our goal is to increase access to specialty care, especially for rural and under-served populations.
The 12-week series focused on Hepatitis C in Hawai`i has finished. This series came in the context of a White House initiative to eliminate HCV in the United States. Our inaugural speaker was Dr. Risha Irvin from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and a leader in this national effort.
Please visit the Resources pages to review the excellent content referenced during the series.
We are grateful to the Hawai`i Department of Health, Hep Free Hawai`i and the Hawai`i Health and Harm Reduction Center for their sponsorship.

WHAT IS ECHO?
ECHO is a methodology for sharing knowledge. It is intentional education. It “moves knowledge, not patients”. It is a way for interdisciplinary groups to collaborate regardless of geographic separation.
ECHO leverages technology to bring scarce resources to under-served and rural populations. It is a way to deliver the right care in the right place at the right time. ECHO creates a virtual learning community that enhances access to specialty care statewide.
