Members of the CanDo team recently attended the Public Health in the Rockies conference held in Fort Collins. The 2014 Public Health in the Rockies conference focused on “Reaching our Goal of Health Equity for All.”  

The 2014 conference featured Keynote Speaker Dr. Camara Phyllis Jones, MD, MPH, PhD. Dr. Jones is a family physician and epidemiologist whose work focuses on the impacts of racism on the health and well-being of the nation. She seeks to broaden the national health debate to include not only universal access to high quality health care, but also attention to the social determinants of health (including poverty) and the social determinants of equity (including racism).
