DENVER – Local Colorado foundations signaled ongoing support for improved community health with the announcement of a new, collaboratively funded grant to the Colorado School of Public Health (CSPH).
“The Colorado School of Public Health is an important partner in training Colorado’s public health work force and it represents a model of academic collaboration among three outstanding Colorado universities. The School of Public Health’s efforts are well worth this investment,” said Chris Wiant, MPH, PhD, president and chief executive officer of Caring for Colorado Foundation.
The Colorado School of Public Health is the first and only accredited school of public health in the Rocky Mountain Region, attracting top tier faculty and students from across the country and providing a vital contribution toward ensuring our region’s health and well being. Collaboratively formed by the University of Colorado Denver, Colorado State University, and the University of Northern Colorado, the Colorado School of Public Health provides training, innovative research and community service to actively address public health issues, including chronic disease, access to health care, environmental threats, emerging infectious diseases, and costly injuries.
