Welcome to the Patient Navigator, Colorado Community Health Worker & Promotor de Salud Alliance

The Alliance promotes policies, programs, and partnerships that: reduce and eliminate barriers to quality health care both within health systems and the community; reduce disparities in health outcomes; and foster ongoing health equity. The Alliance believes that every Coloradan has an equal opportunity to obtain healthcare that personally addresses their medical, dental, mental, emotional, social determinants, and spiritual health needs.


The CHW PN PdS Alliance, with support from the Colorado Cancer Coalition

will be launching a webinar series for motivational interviewing this coming fall. 

In this effort we will be specifically dedicated to applying motivational interviewing techniques to

connect with difficult to reach populations throughout Colorado

to increase cancer screening and prevention
