Colorado Health Symposium
The 2020 Colorado Health Symposium will take place July 29-31 at the Keystone Conference Center in Keystone, Colorado. The Symposium, a national health conference, offers a unique chance to interact with leading experts, community advocates and others dedicated to improving the health and well-being of Coloradans.
Colorado’s Native, immigrant and refugee communities continue to face injustices when it comes to their health. Why? There is a clear relationship between culture, race, national origin and the opportunity for good health and overall well-being. We know that racism, oppression and conscious or unconscious bias are key drivers of poor health.
Bridging Ethnicity, Cultural Identity and Health
This year’s Colorado Health Symposium: Bridging Ethnicity, Cultural Identity and Health, will shine a light on what gets in the way of Coloradans being their healthiest. We’ll hear from the experts – individuals who live and work within these communities – who fight tirelessly to bring health in reach for their families and neighbors. With their voices leading the way, this year’s Symposium will spark conversations on the role that history, policy and culture play in their ability to thrive. We’ll explore solutions to cultivate shared understanding and prioritize the well-being of Native, immigrant and refugee communities. Let’s get to work.
