Advocates Unite! ECHO

ad·vo·cate
noun - A person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy.

Healthcare providers and community advocates are direct observers of how policy impacts practice and service delivery and are uniquely positioned to influence policy decisions that shape our healthcare system inequities. Often providers and community based organizations are not equipped with the resources, tools, and content knowledge to effectively and efficiently engage on an advocacy level and navigate the policy-making landscape.

Advocates Unite! ECHO aims to empower and build the capacity of healthcare providers and community advocates to influence policy.
