March 2nd at Noon: Virtual kickoff event for all attendees.
March 3-18th: Virtual small group meetings with state legislators at various times.
Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 2 from 12:00 – 1:30pm for our virtual kickoff event featuring remarks from Representative Iman Jodeh and advocate Sabrina Walker. Following comments from our speakers, we will cover meaningful strategies to influence policy. Learn about health policies being currently considered at the State Capitol, and how you can share your story and to advocate for our chronic illness community!
By registering for Chronic Disease Awareness Week, you’ll receive the zoom link for the March 2 kickoff event and invites for virtual legislator meetings that will be throughout the weeks of March 3-18. 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!
Keep the conversation going on social media by using #cohealth, #coleg and #ChronicDiseaseCO!
