Your Voice Matters, Too!

Our Colorado/National partnership was fortunate to receive support to provide Cultural Wellness Trainings to Colorado providers and practitioners to increase access to care and eliminate disparities. We want to make sure our programs and services are equipping providers with the right tools and having a positive impact in Colorado’s communities. The data we collect from our training evaluations will help us ensure Colorado’s most vulnerable communities are benefiting from the trainings we provide. In addition, as each of our partners have deep Colorado ties as well as national heath equity priorities, we recognize the value of cross-regional learning. We know Colorado is a national leader in the efforts eliminate disparities, and that feedback from Colorado providers – as well as providers outside of Colorado – can help not only improve access to care in Colorado, but also across the nation. Our online training portal is currently in beta testing and we’re dedicated to continuous improvement. Your completion of the evaluation and certificate program at the end of each module is greatly appreciated, and can help make sure we’re providing the best services possible to empower agencies and providers to eliminate barriers, retain providers, and improve health outcomes. If you received an in-person training from one of our Cultural Wellness Instructors, please complete the evaluation here. You can also receive your Certificate of Completion when you submit your evaluation.
