| 08:00 AM - 05:00 PM

This conference is organized by the Colorado Public Health Association and sponsored by the Colorado School of Public Health. It is the region's largest gathering of individuals associated with public health from Colorado and surrounding states. Conference attendees consist of a wide variety of participants from the public, private and non-profit sectors, as well as the medical, academic and community settings. Please note: The 2020 conference is online and virtual due to COVID-19. 

The theme of the 2020 Public Health in the Rockies conference is "Health At All Altitudes: Action for All. Health for All." This theme continues discussions of our communities’ current and future public health issues. Most importantly, we will learn from our peers’ policy development efforts related to advancing health and health equity for all populations. The 2020 Conference will highlight the ongoing importance of promoting health equity, and aims to:

  • Foster common ground with non-traditional partners including medical-legal partners and legal associates
  • Build new collaboration opportunities across Colorado, Wyoming and the surrounding region
  • Highlight the successes advancing rural public health, public health nursing and health equity in Colorado, Wyoming and the surrounding region
  • Use advocacy and activism to develop a unified voice for public health, health equity, and social justice
  • Celebrate the power of community engagement and participation and highlight our accomplishments in this area to improve health and health equity
  • Facilitate more expansive, inclusive, and relevant leadership and professional development training including how to effectively message public health interventions to inform public health laws and policies (This is the Becoming Better Messengers piece)
