Reflection on the Colorado Health Symposium 2017

Written by: Children's Campaign
Date Posted: August 4, 2017

This week, four lucky staffers attended the Colorado Health Symposium in Keystone, Colorado. The theme of the Symposium, “Let’s Talk About…Inequality,” highlighted many of the issues the Campaign has been learning about as we work to integrate a racial equity focus in our work. Speakers emphasized the need for health policy work to be informed by those most impacted by inequities and why a racial equity focus is necessary given the history of our country. The Symposium ended with a powerful performance of “A Right to Care” by Sarah Jones.

Video recordings of the Colorado Health Symposium are available on The Colorado Health Foundation’s YouTube channel and tweets from the event can be found using #17CHS.
