Here at Children’s Hospital Colorado, child health advocacy is a core part of our hospital’s mission to care for kids. This is why our Government Affairs team works to keep kids out of the hospital by advocating for laws and policies that improve kids’ health. We work with local, state and federal leaders, community partners, families and community members to ensure kids grow up healthy and strong.
We have a responsibility to advocate on behalf of our patients and families, our community and all kids, not only because it’s an investment in our nation’s future, but because it’s the right thing to do.
As a nonpartisan organization, we hope to serve as a resource for voters and elected officials alike on the unique needs of children. Above all, we speak up clearly and powerfully for kids’ needs in public policy. And we rely on our network of Child Health Champions to speak up, too!
