Thanking YOU for a successful year and all you do for equitable health for all. CELEBRATE WITH US!
On Saturday, December 17, 2022, CCBN celebrated its year's achievements on health equity and thanked those who helped make our year a success. The atmosphere was festive and inspirational at Colorado's Health Capitol as health equity champions as far away as England gathered together in-person and virtually to witness the fruits of their labor and recharge for a new year of breaking barriers to optimum health care for all people. Thank you all again for your support of CCBN's mission and the communities we serve.

The CCBN Space Expo: National Launch
This year's goals are "simple": (1) Get 1 million youth to send a CCBN Space Expo themed postcard to Club for the Future to be flown on a future Blue Origin flight and returned to them so that they will always have something from space; (2) Instill hope in our youth - especially those who are justice involved - that our past doesn't have to define our future because our future is not yet written, and (3) HAVE FUN both learning about space and sharing with others what we've learned about space. Well, that didn't happen, but the year is not over yet so we're not giving up. There's still time to get those postcards in with the new goal of reaching the million mark by April 2023. CLICK HERE to access the CCBN Space Expo National Launch page and and track the number of postcards distributed. Spread the word. #aChanceToLeap #CCBNSpaceExpo
