This year, all Chronic Disease Awareness Week events will be virtual due to COVID-19. Our kickoff event will be Wednesday, March 3rd from 12:00 – 1:30pm featuring remarks from Colorado Representative David Ortiz and ALS advocate Sandra Abrevaya. Following comments from our speakers, we will cover meaningful strategies to influence policy by sharing your story and learn about health policies being considered now at the State Capitol.
By registering for Chronic Disease Awareness Week, you’ll receive the zoom link for the March 3rd kickoff event and opportunities to participate in meetings with state legislators between March 8-12th. Our staff will do their best to match attendees with their own state legislators. However please keep in mind that legislator schedules can be unpredictable, therefore you may be invited to meet with a state legislator from a different district if meeting with your legislator is not possible. By registering you will also receive information on various digital ways to engage with Colorado policy makers on your own time to make your voice heard.
