Hot Issues in Health

Colorado's Essential Health Policy Conference
Published: September 9, 2019 | Updated: December 3, 2020

Registration Is Now Open for Hot Issues in Health 2020

Like most events in 2020, Hot Issues will be different this year. Unlike the rest of 2020, though, we think you will really enjoy the conference.

It’s online. It’s shorter. And it’s free. Expect CHI’s in-depth analysis of the election and a preview of the legislative session and the year ahead in health policy.

It’s been a difficult year for us all. Let’s get together — virtually — to share what we’ve learned and prepare ourselves for the important work ahead.

Temas Candentes en Salud será traducido al español en tiempo real por nuestros socios de la Community Language Cooperative. Una grabación en español del evento será disponible en el sitio web del Instituto de Salud de Colorado.
