Addiction Medicine ECHO | Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium

Addiction Medicine ECHO

Project ECHO and the ANTHC Behavioral Health partnered to develop a virtual learning network focused on improving delivery of addiction medicine and medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

What is it about?

This partnership aims to:

  • Enhance best practices relevant to rural Alaska needs
  • Troubleshoot and overcome barriers
  • Offer support and resources to empower providers
  • Inform providers on the latest policies and practices

Who should attend?

Health care providers who want to learn more about addiction medicine, providers interested in starting a MAT program, and current practitioners of addiction medicine looking to support a community of practice. CEs will be available for session attendance.


The program launches Jan. 28 and will run every second and 4th Thursday of each month via Zoom throughout 2021.
