December 2018 - ECHO Participant Follow-up Completed

In December 2018, the ECHO study team announced that October 31, 2018, marked the end of participant follow-up visits in the ECHO Study. Completion of the exit visits marked the end of the data collection phase of the ECHO Study and the beginning of data verification, which involves reviewing all the data—collected from 7,800 women over three years—to make sure that they have been recorded correctly and consistently. Once the data have been verified, the ECHO research team will analyze them, following a detailed statistical analysis plan that is part of the study protocol. The study results are expected in mid-2019.
