Change Agent Chat - Hopewest

Meeting Description:

Change Agent: Individual or organization working to lower costs, improve care, and make Colorado healthier.

Organizations across Colorado break down barriers firmly entrenched in our health care system. With boundless passion and limited resources, they increase access to care, implement innovative ways to deliver high quality care at affordable prices, and, day in and day out, fight to keep Coloradans healthy.

During these chats, we will highlight one of these Change Agents and the exciting work they are doing to create a better health system for us all.
