Attendees will be split up into groups and provided all the tools necessary to meet their legislators at the Capitol, including a coach to help navigate the ins and outs of citizen lobbying. Additionally, this year we are excited to announce our keynote speaker, Chris Vanderveen, investigative reporter with 9News in Denver. Chris has reported extensively on issues in the health care system, including two of CCHI's policy priority areas: balance billing and freestanding emergency departments. His knowledge of the health care system and how it is affecting Coloradans is sure to provide great insight to the importance of CCHI's work this legislative session.
