Hot Issues in Health is Colorado's premier health policy forum. Hosted by the nonpartisan Colorado Health Institute, the event has convened the state’s leading thinkers to discuss pressing issues related to health and health care for nearly 20 years.

Hot Issues brings together a diverse crowd of state legislators, regional and local policymakers, representatives from insurance carriers and health systems, consumer advocates, health care providers, researchers, students and journalists. With conversations swirling about new health policy innovations and a consequential election year looming on the horizon, the 2019 event promises to offer a crucial opportunity for discussion and learning.
