KIHA HOSTS COCARE STATE OF AGING CONFERENCE

On Friday, April 13, 2018 KIHA hosted the first COCARE State of Aging Conference. COCARE is a group of Colorado Universities united in research, service and education to address the challenges of aging. This group first came together in September of 2017 when Dr. Granholm-Bentley convened a meeting of area universities with programs in aging. The original participating universities were the University of Denver, Regis University, CU Anschutz, CSU Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging, CU Boulder Healthy Aging Project, and the UCCS Aging Center. To learn more about COCARE and the State of Aging Conference, please see the Spring 2018 newsletter.
