Denver: John Putnam, chair and longtime member of the Regional Air Quality Council, will assume the top environmental health role in Colorado, starting May 6. As the Director of Environmental Programs at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Putnam will serve as a senior adviser to Executive Director Jill Hunsaker Ryan.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has denounced the new U.S. Department of Health and Human Services rule that makes substantive changes to the Title X Family Planning Program and jeopardizes access to critical reproductive health care services, including cancer screenings, for thousands of Coloradans.
