We envision a Colorado where everyone has the opportunity to be healthy and live in a healthy environment.

Welcome to Trailhead Institute. Since our founding in 1993, we have moved with a mission to advance innovation and collaboration in public and environmental health.

As a nonprofit public health institute based in Colorado, we strive to be the inspirational basecamp for partners working across the public health field — a gathering place where new pathways and possibilities in public health can take root, grow and even flourish.

Our work is driven by a shared commitment to collaboration, justice, and building the capacity of communities to address the challenges they face. Through partnership, we work alongside communities with state and local governmental agencies, community-based organizations, partners across public and private sectors, and funders to improve health for all people living in Colorado.

This is where all of us — together — as relentless advocates of the possible, forge positive change where health begins: the places where we live, work, learn, and play.
