Whether you are a student, an alum, a professional or a friend, we consider you part of our community. The resources available to you through the Colorado School of Public Health will ensure you remain connected and supported in your work.

Striving for Excellence in Public Health Practice
The field of public health is constantly evolving. Every day as we make positive changes and advancements in one area, newer problems arise as a result of the ever-changing world around us.
At the Colorado School of Public Health, we strive for excellence in practice so that you have the tools and insights needed to make a difference in our changing world.
Public health practice occurs when we take our knowledge, skills and competencies and collectively use them to improve population health. This occurs through organized, strategic, interdisciplinary action. We work with you to provide seamless essential public health services and make positive change in your community.
Connecting Public Health Across Colorado & Beyond
We believe a public platform is the best way for interdisciplinary leaders to engage in dialogue on pressing and sensitive priorities and emerging public health issues. Our Center for Public Health Practice brings people together to convene conversations in both seminars and symposiums. Some of the topics have included:
- The Role of Public Health in the Success of Health Care Reform: Closing the Gaps
- Patient Navigation in the New Population Health System
- Nutrition Policy
- Oil and Gas Development: Public Health and the Environment
- Marijuana and Public Health: The Evidence Base for Health Protection in Colorado
- Ebola and Public Health
- Obesity and Public Health
