Safety Net Clinic Week Recap

Safety Net Clinic Week 2014 was a great success! There were 24 individual site-visits from elected officials and candidates for office, 4 open houses, and 5 proclamations announcing Safety Net Clinic Week 2014. In the latest ClinicNET Conversations blog post, Sharon Adams reflects on the week and the record number of site-visits and how it left her feeling particularly inspired. "I am confident that with so many leaders taking an invested interest in learning about the health care safety net, we are getting closer to achieving our vision that Colorado’s vulnerable populations participate in and are well-served by a health care system that promotes healthy individuals living in healthy communities."

We want to extend a big thank you to our Safety Net Clinic Week 2014 Coordinator, Tom Crowe, who returns to Colorado College for his senior year next week! ClinicNET enjoyed having him with us for the summer! We will miss him!

Nominate a Community Champion!

The CCMU Annual Luncheon will be held on September 23rd at 11:00am-1:00pm at the Space Gallery (400 Santa Fe Drive in Denver). The theme this year is Health is Connected, highlighted by our keynote speaker Liz Baxter. We aim to inspire change in the health care system with the power of a diverse range of stakeholders since we believe that health is connected. Investing in health helps communities flourish, and its role as a key part of our civic and social infrastructure is absolute. We often say that policy change accompanies community change in order to create more lasting, holistic change, and this event will focus on the collaborative, collective approach to health care systems change. Register here!

Liz Baxter is a seasoned leader and advocate for health and health care. She is currently the executive director of the Oregon Public Health Institute and board chair of Cover Oregon. Throughout her career, Liz has been a leader in recognizing and convening a diverse range of stakeholders to ensure that policy making is the result of valuable public engagement and different perspectives.

Each year, CCMU honors different members of the community who have been champions for the underserved. The Community Champion Awards can be for physicians, non-physician providers, and community advocates. Nominate those you work with who deserve to be recognized and celebrated!
