Please join the Patient Navigator Training Collaborative and The Alliance of Colorado Community Health Workers, Patient Navigators and Promotores de Salud for a discussion regarding the current legislative and policy initiatives to help support Colorado communities as a result of the hardships related to COVID-19. This webinar will be focused on state level policy but will also examine how national policy may impact Colorado.
