JSI has been contracted by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment’s Disease Control and Environmental Epidemiology Division (DCEED) to build community engagement through stakeholder meeting design, coordination, and facilitation.

JSI works with DCEED to design stakeholder meetings as needed to assist the division in meeting their desired outcomes. JSI uses our experience to successfully engage and communicate with a diverse range of stakeholders to gather perspectives and input on a variety of disease control and environmental epidemiology topics. Incorporating our core values, JSI builds agreement and, where possible, consensus on recommendations for key decisionmakers and legislators that can contribute to the state’s policy and practices. Our work will be summarized and include recommendations for DCEED and stakeholders.
