The Health Kids Colorado Survey is conducted by the University of Colorado Denver and collects youth health and risk-related data around the state from a random sample of middle school and high school students in Fall of odd years.



The success of CEPEG is wholly dependent on the talent, experience, and commitment of a large, diverse, and mulit-disciplinary group of colleagues.
