Upcoming Project ECHO dates coming soon! 

Join virtual learning sessions with Rural EMS/Mobile Integrated Health/Paramedicine experts.

The Florida Rural Health Association along with a grant from the Florida Office of Rural Health, and  Project ECHO is working to support first responders such as firefighters, EMS, medical transport personnel, and law enforcement officers, in their roles on the frontlines of America.

Target Audience: Rural primary care providers, Rural EMS agencies, Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), Rural Hospitals, Rural Health Clinics (RHCs), Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in rural areas, and Rural Health Networks (RHNs) and their staff.

The sessions, designed around case-based learning and mentorship, help local clinicians gain the expertise required to provide needed services. We hope to teach, learn, and share best practices across the communities of first responders and to assist them in building self-efficacy.
