A Collaboration of 10 Organizations Joining Forces to Strengthen Public Health in Colorado
The Public Health Alliance of Colorado is excited to feature the 2013 Health and Environmental Assessment researched and newly published by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The report addresses social, economic, and environmental components of health in Colorado and emphasizes health equity.
The report includes data collected from a wide range of health and environmental experts across the state. This input will be used to guide the 2014 Public and Environmental Health Improvement Plan, a document required under the Colorado Public Health Act, which was signed into law in 2008.
CDPHE’s executive director and chief medical officer Dr. Larry Wolk said about the assessment, “Understanding the factors influencing the health and environment of Coloradans is the first step in determining needed improvements.”
As Colorado continues to actively shape the future of public and environmental health in the state, you too can be a part of the process. For more information or to get involved in planning efforts, contact the department’s Office of Planning and Partnerships at firstname.lastname@example.org.
