Improving Lives of Those Affected by Developmental Disabilities by Optimizing Care Across Missouri

Developmental Disabilities

Show-Me ECHO at the University of Missouri is creating a Developmental Disabilities ECHO to support primary care providers and others who serve adult patients. An interdisciplinary team of expert physicians, pharmacists, behavioral analysts, social workers and family advocates has been formed to assist care providers throughout the state in learning more about effective strategies, resources, support services and optimal psychiatric care practices.
