Every September, we hold our annual fundraising luncheon, which is an opportunity to learn about important health and health care issues, connect with leaders from around the state, and contribute to the future of Center for Health Progress. Each year we feature a national expert, honor community champions, and provide an opportunity to make a donation, if you’d like to support our work.

Keynote Speaker

Rinku Sen is a Senior Strategist at Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation and the Publisher of the award-winning news site Colorlines. Sen is one of the leading voices in the racial justice movement, building upon the legacy of civil rights by transforming the way we talk about race, from something that is individual, intentional, and overt to something that is systemic, unconscious, and hidden. Rinku is the author of Stir it Up and The Accidental American: Immigration and Citizenship in the Age of Globalization, Co-Chair of the Schott Foundation for Public Education, and sits on the boards of Hedgebrook and Working America. Sen received a B.A. in Women’s Studies from Brown University and an M.S. in Journalism at Columbia University.


Every year we give out four awards to leaders who are champions for health and health equity in Colorado. If you know someone worthy of recognition, nominate them today (PDF)!


Sponsors help us make the luncheon possible and support our programs and projects. We have several sponsorship levels (PDF) that include a variety of marketing and registration benefits.
