Public Health in the Rockies is the largest public health conference in Colorado. This two-and-a-half day conference attracts more than 300 attendees from various public health practices from the state and surrounding areas. It takes place outside of the Denver metro area in the fall. The conference features a different theme every year.  Attendees have the opportunity to attend various skill-building sessions of two hours each, program/research “showcase” sessions of between 30 minutes and one hour, and poster sessions. Both practicing public health professionals as well as students are welcomed to attend. This is a great opportunity to network and showcase your research findings. Scholarship available.
