Colorado Health Symposium
The 2019 Colorado Health Symposium was held on July 24-26 at the Keystone Conference Center in Keystone, Colorado. The Symposium, a national health conference, offers a unique chance to interact with cross-sector experts and dedicated professionals who are leading the way in addressing health equity.
There is no doubt that Colorado—like many states throughout the U.S.—is in the midst of a housing crisis. Having a place to call home is essential in life and centers us for good health. Home is out of reach for many Coloradans, which means health is, too. Racism, lack of opportunity and discriminatory policies make safe and affordable housing unattainable. This year’s Colorado Health Symposium, The Intersection of Housing, Health and Inequity, was designed to elevate bold solutions for putting a roof over the head of every Coloradan, while paving the path towards health equity.
