WWS ECHO sessions include a 10-15 minute topic outline or update, followed by specific case or service presentations and group discussion and input. ECHO session topics are developed and delivered by inter-professional experts and cases or services come from the experiences of our ECHO members. WWS ECHO sessions take place on the first Thursday of each month from 12-1:00. (Pending participant desire, we may add a session on the third Thursday of each month.)
We look forward to growing together and enhancing our ability to be of service!
