Notice our logo has changed?  It's to show our new partnership with Poudre Valley Health System and Medical Center of the Rockies to create University of Colorado Health, which is designed to deliver the highest quality patient care with the highest quality patient experience.


Combining Poudre Valley Health System, which is one of the top-performing community health systems in the nation, with University of Colorado Hospital, the highest-ranked academic medical center in the country in quality, will build a healthier community and provide unmatched patient care in the Rocky Mountain West.


Here are a few quick updates:  


Our Let's Talk: Conversations About Women's Health lecture series was a great success. On May 12th experts talked about how to build a healthy lifestyle and strong relationships. Please join us in the Fall of 2012 for more informative lectures.


In this issue we have asked subject matter experts to write about: 

  • The New 3-Dimensional Tomosynthesis Mammography
  • Why Do Females Injure Their Knee's Four to Six Times More Than Men...And What Can You Do About It?
  • A Guide to Skin Care for each Decade of a Woman's Life
