Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know venerable leader Reverend Bill Calhoun. Reverend Calhoun has a long history of serving Denver, including leading critical conversations about health care in communities around the city.
The best health care system is the one designed by and for the people who use it. Read more about how we're empowering Coloradans to advocate for themselves.
As part of our 15 year celebration, we decided it was time to again make a concerted effort and travel to the far reaches of our great state to meet with health care leaders and community members.
My favorite parts of my job are the moments where the connection between the people using the health care system and the work that we do becomes crystal clear.
Nestled up against the mountains with blue skies as far as the eye can see, Durango is like an oasis in the desert of the four corners region. I was there last month to record stories for Colorado HealthStory, but wound up getting so much more out of my visit.
The speakers’ comments all share a common theme: they are all about PEOPLE. They remind us that health is not institutions, models, and policies–health is human.
