Tobacco Grant Program Review Committee
CDPHE’s Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention (HPCDP) Branch is currently engaging in strategic planning efforts to inform the direction of Colorado’s Tobacco and Chronic Disease programs. CDPHE maintains a strong commitment to health and racial equity as a foundation for all the work we do. Our vision is that every Coloradan has equitable access to opportunities to thrive regardless of who they are or where they live. Advancing health and racial equity through programmatic and policy efforts is our highest priority. Your input is valuable and needed as we collaboratively determine our path forward to advance our tobacco and chronic disease efforts.
