ECHO lub suab
One of our Public Health Nurses (PHN) used the [Obesity and Your Health] DVD during a home visit. The client commented that the DVD was "very practical" and that it had "good ideas." The PHN was extremely pleased that this resource was available to share with her clients.

With the support of our generous partners in local public health and safety agencies, ECHO added another key resource to our well-stocked communications toolkit in 2005 with the launching of ECHO Phone (1-888-883-8831)
ECHO Phone, toll-free in the state of Minnesota, (tolls apply out of state) serves limited English speaking communities across the country (graph of ECHO phone usage by location here) by providing seasonal health and safety advice and emergency preparedness information in multiple languages.
During a public health or safety crisis, ECHO Phone will provide updated emergency messaging and instructions from health and safety officials. Users are encouraged to call in frequently for the most up-to-date information.
