In addition, the Colorado School of Public Health (CSPH) is acting as a strategic thinking partner and offering support to assist with the program in 2017.

CPHMP intends to cultivate a strong future for public health in Colorado by facilitating the mentoring process among public health professionals. Mentoring is a developmental relationship in which one person nurtures the professional development of another. This relationship can build pathways to career opportunities, improve recruitment and retention, enrich leadership, increase adaptability in the midst of challenges, heighten professional satisfaction and decrease stress and role conflict. Former CPHMP mentors and mentees alike have found the mentoring relationship valuable and informative.
