The Annual Rural Health Conference brings together experts, leaders and administrators from hospitals and health care facilities throughout Colorado.

It’s about health care administration, finance, policy, workforce, HIT and other critical issues impacting the rural health delivery system –all  while enjoying an open exchange of ideas with powerful connections and trusted colleagues.

Join us for an event that will help you prepare for what’s next in rural health care.


Though she is a lifelong athlete, Tricia Downing’s “grit” goes far beyond the playing field. As a leader, coach and mentor, she is one who cares deeply about others, helping them to see opportunities at times when they may only see overwhelming challenges.

Seventeen years ago, Tricia, a competitive cyclist, was hit by a car while riding her bicycle. In the accident, she was paralyzed from the chest down. While
many others may have seen this life-changing tragedy as an insurmountable challenge, Tricia handled it with tenaciousness and grace and found the strength to flourish. Not only did she return to athletics—competing on the world stage in four different wheelchair sports—she founded and directs The Cycle of Hope, a nonprofit organization created to help other female wheelchair users redefine their own lives. She thrives on helping others see their potential and welcomes the role of “coach,” in guiding them to embrace their unique, authentic and powerful lives.



We are in the process of putting together an exciting agenda. While you wait, check out last year’s agenda.
