Our Focus on Health in Communities

The PHPR Collaborative focuses on improving community health through education, discussion and project collaboration with like minded professionals. With a focus on health equity, healthy eating, active living, access to recreation, connection to places and spaces and reducing social isolation we've got you covered. Whether you are in the city, suburbs, rural communities or mountain towns we've got the connections, experience, and ideas that help make it happen.    

Bringing Together Professionals

Join the hundreds of parks, recreation, pubic health, built environment, health education and health promotion professionals creating collaborative programs, education and opportunities in their home community to improve community health.  We're making a difference all over Colorado by breaking down silos, creating open dialogue and building relationships.

September 13, 2019 - PHPR's 3rd Get Out ~ Get Active Social of the Summer.  "Blowing the lids off the Health Places GuideBox". We had a great group of folks assemble at the Richard Hart's Estate to discover what was in the box. It was full of tools and activities to bring awareness to health and community. The box included booklets, photo cards, health assessment lens and walk guide. Thanks to Rocky Piro for sharing insider info on the creation of the box.  A huge thank you to Cate Townley and Ashley Perillo for facilitating the afternoon and to Joyride Brewing for hosting our networking social. The Creating Healthy Places guide box and guide book are available at Colorado Health Places Collaborative under Health Tools.
