Start an ECHO

As an ECHO Superhub, the AAP offers technical assistance and training to organizations and individuals interested in starting a pediatric-specific ECHO program. In addition to signing partnership documents, you and your ECHO team will attend training (can be provided by the AAP) where you learn how to build a successful ECHO program and implement the program in your community. After training, you will be provided access to a library of ECHO replication materials, as well as the global ECHO community. The AAP can continue to provide technical assistance.
