Hot Issues Returns December 9, 2022

Hot Issues in Health is back in 2022. The Colorado Health Institute will offer both in-person and online attendance options for this year’s event. Tickets to the in-person gathering will be limited — and will be just as hot as the conference. Save the date, and watch for details coming soon.

About Hot Issues in Health

Hot Issues in Health is Colorado’s essential health policy conference, bringing together a diverse crowd — state legislators, regional and local policymakers, representatives from insurance carriers and health systems, consumer advocates, health care providers, researchers, and students — to network and learn about the state’s most pressing health, health policy, and health care issues.


Hilton Denver Inverness | 200 Inverness Drive West, Englewood, Colorado 80112


Registration opens the week of September 12.


  • Early registration for regular admission: $250
  • Students and government employees: $150

Admission includes breakfast, lunch, and the full-day program. Prices will increase on November 1.
