The program, called the Extension for Community Health Care Outcomes model, also known as Project ECHO®, is led in Florida by Ashby Walker, Ph.D., the director of health equity initiatives at the UF Diabetes Institute and an assistant professor of health services research, management and policy at the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, and Michael J. Haller, M.D., a professor and chief of pediatric endocrinology in the UF College of Medicine

The award comes after the successful completion of an 18-month pilot program that established a project that now encompasses 10 health centers around Florida and reaches an estimated 1,000 diabetes patients.
