Colorado Trust Recognizes Group Working for Health Equity

The Colorado Trust named the Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underserved (CCMU) as the recipient of its 2013 Grantee Leadership Award. The annual award of $25,000 is made in recognition of exemplary leadership by a current grantee of The Colorado Trust and will be used by the coalition to support its ongoing work.

CCMU's mission is to ensure that Colorado's health care system meets the needs of the medically underserved and the needs of providers and systems of care dedicated to caring for those who may fall through the cracks in the health care system. CCMU works to achieve its mission through advocacy and policy work, community engagement, collaboration with diverse partners and thought leadership.

CCMU has positioned itself as a bridge between underserved communities and policymakers, working seamlessly toward this end with other organizations and groups. CCMU's staff and leadership bring together diverse communities, and generating meaningful conversations that result in active changes to improve access to health for Coloradans who are most vulnerable.
