Background and History of the Program

We all remember where we were in March 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic upended the lives of countless people across the world.

Within days of the shutdown and quarantining, we at the IUPUI ECHO Center along with the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health quickly coordinated to bring together public health and clinical leadership to share the most current resources, strategies, and perspectives for addressing the ever-changing coronavirus in our communities.

In March 2023, we decided to transition from the Indiana COVID-19 Response ECHO to the Indiana Public Health Response ECHO. We recognize that while the COVID-19 pandemic is not over, it is not the only infectious disease requiring a public health response.
