Join us on April 26 in Cañon City, Colo. for Symposium Unplugged: Poverty’s Impact on Colorado’s Health, a daylong event that looks at the effects of poverty on the health of individuals and families in our state.

As a leading driver of inequity, poverty has an adverse impact on nearly all factors related to our health and well-being: access to health care, jobs, transportation, education, affordable housing and so much more.
