The goal of this year’s Colorado Health Symposium was to address issues related to equity in access to health care. The conference was held last week in Keystone, and brought together hundreds of health care professionals and policy makers from Colorado and beyond. Colorado Public News was there, and this week we’re bringing you a series of conversations from the Symposium. Today, Carol McKinley brings you a conversation with Dr. Jeff Brenner, who has studied zip codes, and what they can tell us about health care costs, and the health care system.
