Abby and Shane (CKF CEO and President) visited about how this intersects with the decrease in the rate of opioid overdose deaths and if this is a sign that things are changing in the right direction.

CKF and Project ECHO

CKF Addiction Treatment partnered with the University of Kansas on Project ECHO to highlight opioid addiction and medication assisted treatment twice in 2018. Project ECHO brings together healthcare professionals (doctors, nurses, clinicians, etc.) and community partners through a series of virtual presentations and discussions over a healthcare topic. This was a pivotal point in collaboration within healthcare to recognize addiction as a chronic disease in Kansas.
