Hot Issues in Health is Colorado's premier health policy forum.
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.
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.
Legislators, Commissioners, and Legislative Staff
A limited number of legislators, commissioners, and staff qualify for complimentary registration for this educational event, often described as a nonpartisan “health policy bootcamp.” Advance registration — exclusively for elected officials and staff — opened September 9.
Questions may be directed to Allie Morgan, CHI’s Legislative Director, at 720.382.7083.
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.
