National Public Health Week 2018

Colorado School of Public Health's 10th Anniversary!


We're celebrating our 10th Anniversary & National Public Health Week!

During the first full week of April each year, the American Public Health Association brings communities together across the United States to celebrate National Public Health Week (NPHW) and:  
  • ​Recognize the contributions of public health! 
  • ​Highlight public health issues that are important to improving our nation! 
In addition to campus-wide events on all three of our partner campuses (CU Anschutz, CSU and UNC), ColoradoSPH co-hosts a number of local events and activities that are organized by our students and staff and our public health partners like the Colorado Public Health Association, Colorado Environmental Health Association, Public Health Nurses Association of Colorado, The Trailhead Institute, and the Colorado Association of Local Public Health Officials​.


 ​Join us for one of our anniversary celebration events on our campuses!

As we go into our tenth year, we recognize everyone who has been a part of our school from the beginning and through today. ​Join us to celebrate the accomplishments of the entire ColoradoSPH community and the signing of the Colorado Public Health Reauthorization act of 2008 that made this all possible. 

Three main events will be happening across our campuses in honor of our anniverary--join us at one or all three! ​



Join us for these NPHW Community Events that we co-sponsor! 

Join us during National Public Health Week with a fun-filled morning at Colorado Public Health Day at the Capitol! Join the Colorado Public Health Association and the Colorado School of Public Health to learn the basics of the legislative process and how to communicate with your legislator! Breakfast is provided and ColoradoSPH Dean, Dr. Jonathan Samet, will deliver a special school welcome. Please RSVP
