Community Forums

The CLUB 20 Education and Research Foundation continues to host community health care forums throughout the Western Slope communities as part of The Colorado Trust Health Care project and in cooperation with Colorado Mesa University.

For decades, there has been an intense national debate about health care. Unfortunately, conversations in Washington D.C. and Denver don’t always take into account the needs of Western Colorado. In an effort to build community will, The CLUB 20 Education and Research Foundation staff and project facilitators are continuing to travel throughout the Western Slope counties to give each community an oppportunity to voice their unique health care issues. 

Community Matrix

In each community, participants are given the opportunity to voice their thoughts about what is working and what is not working in their community. These discussions are captured on a flip chart, and then transcribed later to be compiled into a matrix that will be used to compare counties. This matrix is now available for download as a spreadsheet where interested parties can sort by county, city, or by what is working and not working by clicking on the drop down arrows in the header.  The matrix is a work in progress, and we will post additional counties as soon as they are available. Click on the link below to download. If you have any questions, or trouble downloading the Excel spreadsheet, please call our office at 970-242-3264.

Polling Results

In each community a series of questions are asked based on the table discussions about health care access, quality, personal responsibility and cost. Each participant's answers are captured using Turning Point Technologies software and keypads and exported into a report. Community forum results to date are downloadable as a PDF by following the links below.
