Welcome to Colorado Public Health Association

The Colorado Public Health Association (CPHA) represents a broad geographic area, including metro Denver, the Western slope and Eastern plains. Eighty percent of Colorado's population lives along the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, within a band approximately 30 miles wide and extending from Wyoming to New Mexico.


New & Improved! Colorado Public Health Mentoring Program

In 2012, CPHA started a new, annual Mentoring Program that matched new, younger public health professionals, students and other members with experienced public health professionals.  We have now partnered with the Colorado Environmental Health Association (CEHA) and Public Health Nurses Association (PHNAC) to expand and strengthen the program.
