Throughout the state of Colorado PHEP and HPP funding invests in people, plans, training and equipment needed to effectively respond to emerging public health threats. We often use quantitative (numbers based) data to draw conclusions and make decisions, but that data doesn’t always tell the whole story. Sharing stories allows for a deeper understanding of the work we do and the communities we support.
