The Colorado Medical Society announced full support for a work plan released by Gov. John Hickenlooper titled, “The State of Health: Colorado’s Commitment to Become the Healthiest State.” The governor formally released the plan at a press event on May 6.

The CMS Board of Directors reviewed the plan and voted at their meeting on Friday, May 3, to support the governor’s vision and actively participate in advancing the goals put forth in the plan. Over the coming months, CMS will educate members on the plan, provide resources on healthy living and ways physicians can participate in public and patient education, partner with other stakeholders, and encourage physicians to lead by example by living a healthy lifestyle.
