Legislative Session Begins

It’s that time of year – well, a little later this year, but it’s time. The Colorado Legislative session began this week, with an astounding 240 or so bills released in the first few days. We are eager to have our policymakers back to work and anticipate some activity in the health care space. We will follow those health-related bills and engage with thought leaders on policies that help forward our mission. More to come as we know more about health-related bills.  

As a reminder, we recently announced that our doors are open for anyone who is currently uninsured, including people who missed the annual Open Enrollment Period. The Uninsured Enrollment Period is open through May 15. We appreciate you spreading the word.

Black History Month

I shared some thoughts about our year round support of Colorado’s Black communities, and am proud that we are able to participate in several events this month in honor of Black History Month. This Saturday, I will give opening remarks at the Black Democratic Caucus Townhall. You can also find us presenting at and sponsoring the Center for African American Health’s Collaborative Black Health Summit next weekend.

Be well,
