The work of public health lies here – in improving the environments where health begins and ensuring that regardless of where one’s roots lie, the conditions of their environment afford all people the opportunity to grow and flourish.

Stories From the Field
In order for communities to thrive, we must understand the impacts that historical factors and social and economic barriers play in shaping the environments where our health begins.
We must also have a place to dream.
If we hope for the fruit of our field to be abundance, equity and the regeneration of diverse communities, how else might we reenvision and sustain thriving environments? What does a Colorado look like where the conditions of our environments are such that all people have the opportunity to bloom?
Like all things in nature, we share a basic need for clean air, water, nourishment, shelter,
reproduction, safety and belonging.
These fundamental needs lay the groundwork for what makes us well. The resources included here address the basic needs of our roots that fuel our journey to health. They also serve to support public health workers and organizations in serving their communities.
