36th Annual Community and School Health Pediatric Conference/Telephone Triage

June 16, 2022 to June 17, 2022

Our nation continues to face increasingly complex issues that are impacting the health and well-being of children and families. It is essential that healthcare providers are aware of the latest research and evidence-based practice to provide optimal care. This conference will emphasize an integrated approach to care among family, community, and healthcare teams through case-based presentations, thought-provoking discussions, and an optional afternoon session focused on mental health training.


We are grateful for the ongoing financial support from the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Fund for Perinatal and Pediatric Outreach Programs through Children’s Hospital Colorado.
