Colorado Health Foundation, The Colorado Trust and Kaiser Family Foundation form Partnership

The partnership will hire a Colorado-based Kaiser Health News (KHN) reporter and recruit a team of freelance journalists throughout the state to bring the same high-quality health journalism to Colorado and the surrounding region that KHN produces nationally. This partnership will also share important stories from Colorado and the region with the nation.

“This is an important step towards addressing a long-time need for more stories on health equity, health policy, and health care issues in our state,” said Ned Calonge, MD, MPH, president and CEO of The Colorado Trust. “Allowing Coloradans to understand how their health is impacted by policies, systems, and social circumstances is essential to ending inequalities, as well as improving individual and community well-being. We are especially pleased that these stories will be available for free to any Colorado media outlet.”

Media organizations interested in working with KHN should contact KHN at KHNPartnerships@kff.org, and those interested in joining our efforts to expand and improve health journalism in Colorado, the mountain states, and beyond should contact KFF at healthjournalism@kff.org. Colorado employment opportunities will be posted soon at www.kff.org/employment-opportunities.
