He said, “So are we going to talk about how we need to be more healthy, and that we need more affordable health coverage?” Our response was, “Yes and yes, but stick around and listen to the conversation. There is more.”

Indeed, yesterday we recapped how the new Colorado Health Foundation President and CEO Karen McNeil-Miller is tackling tour conversations by tapping into the stories behind the county-specific, health-related data.
