I was chosen for a wonderful opportunity last week to accompany the new president of The Colorado Health Foundation around the Mountain region of Colorado. We visited 9 cities in 8 counties in 3 days. The #HealthiestCO Statewide Listening Tour was the brain child of Karen McNeil-Miller, who wanted to meet the people in each county to get a better understanding of their health needs. Put faces to her statistics and data. We drove about 600 miles and met passionate people, listened to their experiences and stories. Everyone was eager to improve the health of their communities. It was a pretty neat experience.
Here are a few of my favorites from our travels. Enjoy!
