Unfortunately, despite considerable stakeholder input provided during town hall-style forums hosted by the administration over the past several months, the process lacked any substantive and iterative discussions or debate of genuine solutions. As a result, the Polis proposal misses the mark because it prioritizes lower premiums at the expense of patient access and choice.
Join fellow health care leaders to discuss innovative models for rural health care delivery and share strategies that accelerate the shift to an integrated, high-performing and sustainable rural health care system.

Excited to bring breakout sessions for #opioidsafetyco attendees to focus on different facets of the #opioidepidemic, including a #harmreduction simulation room, ways to engage communities in MAT and addressing opioid addiction in the hospital with @RichBottner.
Charlotte Ledonne talks about San Luis Valley efforts - How many of you know your Chief of Police, Sheriff, Board of Health, County Commissioners? You have what you need to start a syringe access program. #opioidsafetyco
"We have to do better." @COAttnyGeneral shares how we must use every tool in our toolbox to address the opioid crisis and change the system. That includes preserving the ACA, engaging on opioid manufacturer litigation and supporting community recovery programs. #opioidsafetyco

From @RyanForRecovery Drug overdose has overtaken car accidents as the leading cause of accidental deaths in the US. @JeromeAdamsMD suggests that we focus on enabling people to carry Naloxone much the way we train people to perform CPR #opioidsafetyco
We are grateful to have @RyanForRecovery here to share some of his story and how we can all work together to demand immediate reform and change the conversation to help those in recovery. #opioidsafetyco
We are grateful to the @Surgeon_General for sharing lots of resources available to help us continue to end this opioid epidemic and to build the programs and systems now to stop the next "fire" from starting. https://addiction.surgeongeneral.gov/ and https://pcssnow.org/ #opioidsafetyco
It's our great pleasure to welcome @Surgeon_General VADM Jerome Adams, MD, to set our focus for the summit today. "The opioid epidemic touches all of us. Even if you are the Surgeon General of the United States, it still impacts your family." #opioidsafetyco
We are thrilled to partner with @CO_CDHS for the 3rd annual CO Opioid Safety Summit - convening more than 400 health care leaders to discuss innovation and the sustainability of opioid safety programs in our state! #opioidsafetyco
