The Colorado Health Symposium

Let’s Talk About… Inequity

The 2017 Colorado Health Symposium is scheduled on Aug. 2-4 at the Keystone Resort & Conference Center. Learn more about the Symposium.

2017 Social Media Fellowship Program

The fellowship program is an opportunity for five social media experts from nonprofits or publications working in social change to participate in one of the top national health policy conferences in person.

Specifically, fellows will be asked to:

  • Participate in one pre-event planning and brainstorming conversation hosted by the Colorado Health Foundation.
  • Promote the Health Symposium live stream and speaker updates leading up to and during the event through the fellow’s organization/publication channels.
  • Use social media during the event to share what you are learning.
  • Encourage other conference attendees to use social media during the conference.
  • Write at least one post-Symposium article for publication on the fellows’ organizational blog or other publication.

During the Symposium, fellows can choose whether to share their experiences through their professional or personal social media channels. However, fellows are chosen based on the alignment of their organization/publication interests with the content presented at the Symposium. Therefore, the Foundation expects fellows to share what is most relevant to their own professional channels with those audiences. They must promote the live streamed speakers of most interest to their audience and their post-Symposium impressions through their professional social media channels.

In other words, the Foundation will not dictate that fellows promote everything the Symposium has to offer. Instead, the fellowship experience should illustrate how the Symposium content directly applies to the fellow’s work. 

In exchange for promoting and sharing the Health Symposium through social media, fellows will receive:

  • Fully-waived registration fee 
  • Lodging in Keystone (for two or three nights, depending on travel distances). Lodging for scholarship recipients will be close to the conference center with free shuttle transportation if needed. 

The application period has ended.

Recipients will be notified by email the week of May 22. If selected, you will be contacted with additional information on registration and lodging.
