Recognizing the unique needs of healthcare and public health workers, CDPHE's Office of Emergency Preparedness & Response has convened a team of CDPHE employees and over 50 healthcare representatives to form the Healthcare Worker Resilience & Retention Advisory Group. The group’s main goal is to bridge the gap between health workers & responders and supportive resources.  Over time, this will be done in multiple ways, with this webpage starting the process. Begin your own process of discovery with the resources above.
