Learn alongside other Colorado leaders, advocates, and community partners.
Every September, we hold our annual fundraising luncheon, which is an opportunity to learn about important health and health care issues and connect with leaders from around the state. Each year, we feature a national expert whose work and voice can contribute to the local health care dialogue and honor community champions.

This year’s luncheon will be September 17 in Denver, and we’re thrilled to feature Tara Houska (Couchiching First Nation Anishinaabe), who is a tribal attorney and Campaigns Director of Honor the Earth. She spent six months on the frontlines fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline, and is currently engaged in the movement to defund fossil fuels. She is a co-founder of Not Your Mascots, a non-profit committed to eradicating Native stereotyping. She’s given a TED talk and Harvard keynote, as well as won numerous awards, conferred by everyone from Melinda Gates to Outside Magazine.
Nominate a Health Equity Champion
Every year we honor three Health Equity Champions and one Lifetime Achievement awardee. Health Equity Champions are individuals who exemplify bold health equity leadership in their communities or professional roles. Lifetime Achievement awardees are individuals who have a long history of health equity leadership that has impacted the field, contributed to knowledge, expanded the movement, and/or mobilized the community. If you know someone worthy of recognition, nominate them by August 14!
