The IN CAREs ECHO brings together leaders from key sectors within local communities in Indiana that are experiencing high rates of substance use disorder and opioid-related overdose to share community-based solutions that have demonstrated effectiveness and to mitigate poor health outcomes related to drug use.
Each session begins with a didactic presentation by a guest speaker and it is followed by an engaging, open discussion amongst the participants on the Zoom call. Following the didactic discussion, a county will present a case study where they'll ask for feedback from the participants.
The program is a collaboration between the IUPUI ECHO Center at the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health and the Division of Trauma and Injury Prevention (DTIP) at the Indiana Department of Health and funds the implementation of community-driven, best-practice efforts in 14 Indiana counties.
