One December 12th, 2012 ECHO held a workshop in the afternoon of the Faculty of Professional Schools Scholarship Showcase Conference.
During the workshop, participants were briefed on the history of ECHO, key objectives, and primary goal. Each ECHO core-member was given the opportunity to speak about their individual research programs, before participants were split into four groups.
Each group spent 15 minutes at a station, before rotating to the next. The stations were as follows:
1. Fears and Surprise: Can you see the Difference?
2. Are you Healthy? Learn about Using Self-Reported Health Measurement Scales.
3. Learn how to incorporate Art into Research
4. You are what you Eat, but how do you know & where does all that Energy go?
