Colorado is an extremely health state in terms of activity. With the mountains and many outdoor activities, it is easy and accessible for Colorado residents to stay active, resulting in a very good obesity rating.
However, as a community, there are many public health indicators outside of the obesity ranking that show there is opportunity to make a different with the state if you are in the public health field. With an uninsured rank of 26 and a poverty percentage of 13%, there is some work to do to continue to advance the state.
The only university offering accredited CEPH programs is the Colorado School of Public Health in Aurora (just outside of Denver), but it does have multiple options, including multiple options for a masters in public health degree, and almost 10 options for doctorate-level programs.
Many in Colorado choose an online public health degree
While the Colorado School of Public Health is an excellent choice for people that want to move to the Denver area or live there already, it does not yet have an online MPH (or BPH/DPH) option. View more on the most common online program in public health - the MPH - here, but with the accessibility most in the US have to the internet (especially the educated), an online MPH is becoming extremely common in the industry.
We recommend looking into multiple MPH programs - you can view more on the online page mentioned above, and we have listings for some of the top featured programs within the site.
