Addressing Mental Health and Physical Activity in K-12 Children in Colorado Springs

Location
Colorado Springs, Colorado
Organization(s)
Colorado School of Public Health, Children’s Hospital Colorado

The Colorado School of Public Health and Children’s Hospital Colorado are collaborating on a pilot project to integrate HIA into hospital community benefit activities. The HIA will generate recommendations based on two priority areas identified in Children’s Hospital Colorado’s community health needs assessment of El Paso County: mental health and the combined effects of physical activity, nutrition, and obesity. The recommendations will inform the hospital’s community improvement implementation plan, which is one of several federal requirements for maintaining the hospital’s nonprofit status.
