Associate Dean Judith Albino, Colorado School of Public Health at the University of Colorado Denver, has been named to a four-year term on the Caring for Colorado Foundation Board of Directors by Gov. John Hickenlooper. As a new appointee, Albino contributes a unique perspective of public health to a board that is composed of other senior health care and business leaders.
Albino “brings expertise to the board as a health researcher who understands the complexities of accessing health services,” said Foundation Vice President Susan Hill. “(She) understands the importance of population health and has considerable public policy experience.”
Besides her work in development and strategic planning, Albino directs the Center for Native Oral Health Disparities, providing expertise in oral health. As a board member, Albino will be responsible for contributing to grant-making decisions that advance the foundation’s statewide mission to promote and serve health care needs of the people of Colorado.
“We are fortunate in Colorado to have major foundations, such as Caring for Colorado, that serve multiple purposes as think tanks and granters of funds to stimulate innovative thinking, insure the effectiveness of access systems, and explore new models and programs for meeting the health care needs of our State,” Albino said.
