Hot Issues in Health

Colorado's Essential Health Policy Conference
Published: September 9, 2019 | Updated: November 10, 2021

Hot Issues on Hiatus

We are sorry to announce that the Hot Issues in Health conference will not take place in 2021. The magic of Hot Issues comes from a face-to-face gathering of Colorado's health policy community. We will be back when we can gather in person in a safe and responsible manner.

In the meantime, stay up-to-date on CHI's research with Eggheads, our monthly breakfast seminars. Look for a 2022 legislative preview at our December Eggheads event.

Like many parts of life in 2020, Hot Issues was different.

The two-hour online conference put forward our best thinking about politics, policy, and ethical leadership during this pivotal moment.

Replay our 2020 conference in the three videos below.
