Speak Up for Healthcare in Colorado
Did you know that 170,000 Colorado children do not have basic health care? This puts our state toward the bottom of the list – and that’s not okay. We believe you should be able to get the care you and your family need to stay healthy, and that you should be able to see a doctor without facing unpredictable costs and hours on the phone trying to schedule appointments.
That’s why Children's Hospital Colorado is using a grant from The Colorado Trust to help make your voice heard along with other Coloradans. Getting the care you and your family need, when you need it, isn’t too much to ask. Working together we can move Colorado closer to that common-sense goal.
What can you do now?
Add your voice to the thousands of Coloradans who comprise Children's Hospital Colorado Grassroots Advocacy Network. This is a group of people who care about kids' health and well-being and want to make a difference by speaking up clearly and powerfully for kids when public policy decisions are made. Advocates receive action alerts on policy issues as well as timely information about kids’ issues and invitations to upcoming events. It doesn’t have to take a lot of time to stay informed and get involved. Join the Network now!
