Hot Issues in Health

Colorado's Essential Health Policy Conference
Published: September 9, 2019 | Updated: December 12, 2019

The livestream for Hot Issues in Health 2019 will be archived on this page later this month.

Hosted by the nonpartisan Colorado Health Institute, the event has convened the state’s leading thinkers to discuss pressing issues related to health and health care for nearly 20 years.

The 2019 Hot Issues in Health Conference will take place on Thursday, December 5, 2019 and Friday, December 6, 2019 at the Hilton Denver Inverness in Englewood, Colorado.

About the Conference: Hot Issues brings together a diverse crowd of state legislators, regional and local policymakers, representatives from insurance carriers and health systems, consumer advocates, health care providers, researchers, students and journalists. With conversations swirling about new health policy innovations and a consequential election year looming on the horizon, the 2019 event promises to offer a crucial opportunity for discussion and learning.


Hot Issues in Health is Amendment 41 compliant. The Independent Ethics Commission ruled in 2014 that public officials would not violate Amendment 41 if they accept a complimentary registration to Hot Issues in Health. We confirmed with IEC staff in August 2019 that this ruling stands. You can read the IEC's ruling letter here.
