Local Foundations Provide Support to Expand CSPH Partnerships and Outreach

Local Colorado foundations signaled ongoing support for improved community health with the announcement of a new, collaboratively funded grant to the Colorado School of Public Health.

The Caring for Colorado Foundation, Colorado Health Foundation, Colorado Trust and Rose Community Foundation collaborated to donate $1.5 million to expand the school of public health's academic-community partnerships.

The grant will provide support to accelerate the school's move to online education for rural health professionals, build community health improvement capacity in response to the Affordable Care Act, and provide a forum for discussion on pressing public issues. 

The school plans to report on the grant's activities, including highlights of community activities, through the Center for Public Health Practice, publichealthpractice.org.
