The governance of the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) program will be comprised of a senior program director, who reports directly to the NIH Director and works in concert with the principal investigators of the Coordinating Center and Data Analysis Center to form the ECHO Steering Committee leadership team. An External Scientific Board that reports directly to the NIH Director will provide an external perspective to the ECHO Steering Committee leadership. The program will be reviewed annually to determine if goals and milestones are being met, and whether additional adjustments need to be made or integrated to reflect new advances.
