CHPA receives grant to strengthen associationPublished 11/26/2007

The Colorado Public Health Association (CPHA) recently received a $90,000 grant from the American Public Health Association (APHA) to build capacity and strengthen the infrastructure of the association.

The 3.5 year grant will help CPHA build on successes, enhance leadership, collaborate with other health agencies, influence health policy and lead community programs.

"Our ability to identify, prevent and respond to public health threats depends on the collective actions of public, private and voluntary agencies across the state," said Tracey Richers Maruyama, M.A., president-elect for CPHA. "There is a variety of pressing health concerns facing Coloradoans, so it is crucial we have the infrastructure to meet the public health needs of those in our communities."

CPHA will use the funds to participate in APHA’s Get Ready campaign, which works to create a national movement to enable all Americans to:

v Protect themselves, their families and their communities from preventable, serious health threats;

v Cultivate strategic relationships and partnerships with foundations, health departments and other health organizations;

v Develop and implement a leadership succession plan;

v Propose policies on critical public health issues; and

vInitiate state-level grassroots campaigns on complex health issues facing the state.

The grant also provides resources for basic operations, communication tools, expanding the ability to educate policy-makers on public health issues, and enhancing affiliate communications.

The Colorado Public Health Association (CPHA) was founded by a group of dedicated public health professionals in 1938, building on an organization called "The Council of State-Wide Health Agencies," which began in 1924.

The Council was formed from agencies working in health and welfare, and directed its efforts toward educating the citizenry about health standards and the gap between the standards and what existed.

CPHA membership is as diverse as public health itself and includes nurses, epidemiologists, planners, health specialists, health educators, physicians and others.

The CPHA Mission: CPHA works together to assure Healthy People and Healthy places in Colorado by:

vBringing Together People, Groups, and Organizations

vCreating a Diverse Forum for Dialogue and Exchange of Ideas on Health and Environment Issues

vLeading and Advocating for Public and Environmental Health

vPromoting Professional Growth of Members
