SVSU SUD Project ECHO: Responding to COVID-19 Crisis

To provide ongoing support for healthcare providers in this unprecedented time, Saginaw Valley State University's Substance Use Disorder ECHO is responding by incorporating relevant COVID-19 information into all of our presentations. 

We will address the new challenges facing providers in the provision of substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery services and provide practical resources that will help providers meet the changing needs of patients.

Please consider following us on Facebook and visiting our Resources page for the latest information available on COVID-19 and SUD treatment.

Project ECHO: A Revolution in Medical and Care Delivery

Project ECHO is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increase workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, primary care doctors, nurses, and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.

Along with our partners Recovery Pathways, Bay-Arenac Behavioral Health Authority, Ferris State University and Peer360 Recovery Alliance offers the latest information and case-based learning in substance use disorder prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery.
