  • Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) Pulmonary Asthma Teleclinic. Project ECHO is an innovative model in treating complex chronic diseases in rural and under-served areas of New Mexico. Via technology, ECHO bridges the gap between urban healthcare specialists and providers, including school based health centers and school nurses in rural settings. The Pulmonary/Asthma teleclinic meets the second and fourth Fridays from noon to 1 PM. We will extend that time for school nurse staff who are busy over the lunch hour.  Providers, including nurses and school-based health center providers, present de-identified cases to Dr. Harkins, Associate Professor in pulmonary and critical care at UNM's Dept of Internal Medicine. Dr. Harkins or a guest speaker presents information on a pulmonary/asthma topic, answers questions about cases, co-manages difficult cases, and reviews current best practice guidelines in treatment. We are also pleased to offer CMEs for qualifying participants.  If you are interested in participating in the Asthma teleclinic contact: or KLuttecke@salud.unm.

Facility Resources

The SBHC facility itself is an important piece of the service we provide. It reflects the love and care we have for the young people we serve. When a young person walks into in a SBHC he or she should say, "wow, this place values me."

Therefore, some important questions for each SBHC staff member to ask him/herself are:

  • What are we saying to our adolescents via the facility?

  • Does the facility reflect adult or youth values and aesthetics?

  • How can we improve our SBHC facility so that it invites the students to take care of their physical and emotional health?

  • How can we involve students in the revitalization of our facility?
