You Are Invited: Chronic Disease State Plan Forums

Reducing the burden of chronic disease on Colorado’s citizens is a public health priority of the CDPHE’s Prevention Services Division (PSD). 


Although Colorado is a recognized leader in this area, a chronic disease state plan is needed to create a system and linkages among programs and initiatives. Creating a state and local system of chronic disease prevention and health promotion starts with a common vision and shared agenda for action.

We invite you to join us at a community forum designed to generate ideas for this shared agenda.  Through this process, stakeholders will have the opportunity to provide input on the following domains: Community Clinical Linkages, Education/Communications, Health Systems, Policy & Environmental Change, and Data & Evaluation.

Please join us to share your vision and ideas for a coordinated approach for chronic disease prevention and management in Colorado. Your input is extremely valuable, and we cannot undertake the redesign of this initiative without your voice. We ask that you share this invitation with other interested persons that we may have inadvertently missed.
