Project ECHO: Addressing Alcohol Misuse Prevention for the 21st Century


Alcohol continues to be the most widely misused substance in our communities with harmful impacts on health outcomes across the lifespan. Nationally, excessive alcohol use contributes to more than 140,000 deaths each year, including over 6000 deaths each year in New England alone. However, evidence-based prevention strategies can be effective in reducing alcohol misuse when prevention professionals have the tools and knowledge to advocate for strong alcohol policies and community approaches to alcohol prevention.


Join this intensive Project ECHO learning community to gain knowledge and skills to address issues related to alcohol misuse in your community with strategies supported by prevention science. The overall goal of this ECHO is to increase the use of evidence-based approaches for alcohol misuse prevention among prevention professionals in New England.


This intensive Project ECHO will meet from 12:00-1:00 on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month, January 25-April 25, 2024.

Project ECHO®

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Health Outcomes) is an evidence-based distance learning method developed by researchers at the University of New Mexico, in which a group of faculty experts meets regularly with a participant cohort to engage in case-based discussion and learning. Using this format, this group will meet for 1hour via Zoom videoconference. Each session will include a brief expert-led educational segment and an extended participant-led case discussion.

Note: Due to space, this program is only available to the New England region (CT, ME, MA, NH, RI, VT).  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis through January 19, 2024.
