Chris Wiant Scholarship Fund
As you may know, Caring for Colorado's founding President and CEO, Chris Wiant, retired this past April. While Caring for Colorado had hoped to celebrate Chris's career in person, and thank him for his 50 years of service in public health and philanthropy, it is simply not to be.
Instead, Caring for Colorado will be honoring his significant contribution to our state through a Board directed scholarship fund at the Colorado School of Public Health. The current Board has made an initial gift of $50,000 to start this fund.
The Chris Wiant Scholarship Fund will be used to help support the next generation of public health leaders in Colorado as they pursue their Master's or Doctoral degrees. This honors Chris’ legacy in working to promote community health throughout his career.
If you would like to make a contribution to this fund, you can do so by following the instructions below.

NEHA OFFERING FREE ONLINE TRAININGS
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing, shelter-in-place orders, and the cancellation of local conferences, meetings, and events, environmental health professionals are finding it increasingly difficult to obtain access to continuing education and training.
In response to this need, NEHA is offering free access to online trainings to all environmental health professionals regardless of membership status starting on March 30, 2020.
The online trainings include our webinars, partner courses, and E-Learning videos of sessions from the 2017–2019 AECs. By watching these webinars, courses, and videos, environmental health professionals can earn continuing education contact hours toward their NEHA credentials.
At this time, open access will be available for 90 days and will end on June 30, 2020.
We also have created a COVID-19 resources page for environmental health professionals. Be sure to visit the page frequently for the latest developments and resources.
