What is Symposium University?
The Colorado Health Symposium gathers leaders from the health care community, business and legislative arenas. Together, these cutting-edge thinkers explore the most pressing issues in health and health care.
Now you can join them. Symposium University is a unique opportunity for educational programs, organizations and individuals to participate in one of the top national health policy conferences online or in person.
Opportunities during the Symposium
We work with Colorado colleges and universities each year to select health students for Symposium U scholarships. Symposium U scholars will receive hotel accommodations and full access to the three-day conference. In return, we ask that they share their perspectives through their social media outlets and on our Health Relay blog, posted throughout the event.
Classrooms and individuals not attending in person also have the opportunity to participate through social media by viewing a live video stream of all plenary and keynote sessions and asking questions via Twitter or Facebook.
Symposium social media activities are available for your educational use throughout the year. Here’s how you can access Symposium offerings year-round:

Subtitled "Health Equity: Bridging the Divides," this 16-page document revisits key moments from the 2012 Symposium. The report includes provocative quotes and compelling data from the Symposium's keynote speakers, along with excerpts from a thoughtful and spirited debate about the government's role in what we eat.
We continue to look for innnovative partnerships in promoting Symposium U social media on campuses and welcome your partnership ideas.
