March 3rd at Noon: Virtual kickoff event for all attendees.
Week of March 8th: small group virtual meetings with state legislators.
Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 3rd from 12:00 – 1:30pm for our virtual kickoff event 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 invites for virtual legislator meetings that will be throughout the week of March 8th. 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.
Please note, if you are unable to attend the virtual program on March 3rd, a recording will be provided. Additionally, we will have options if you prefer to meet with legislators by phone. Even if you are unsure if your schedule allows you to participate, please register and share your story – we’ll help pass it along to legislators for you!
