Partners & Collaboration

Partnering with Rural Colorado to Increase Health Care Access

Building Rural Colorado’s Primary Care Workforce is a collaborative effort between Red Rocks Community College Physician’s Assistant Program, Colorado Counties Incorporated, Colorado Municipal League, and the Special districts Association who together make up the Colorado Collaboration for Rural Healthcare Access (CCRHA). CCRHA was formed in 2010 in response to the existing and projected shortages of primary care providers in Colorado, felt acutely in rural areas of the state.
