Improving the health of local employees

Groundbreaking research is vital to improving local patient outcomes. This is why we have been funding research in Colorado since the 1970s. By driving scientific breakthroughs and creating guidelines for care that reflect the latest proven research findings, we improve the way that local hospitals help patients prevent, treat and recover from heart disease and stroke.

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Not all pumpkin spice is bad for you! Use 100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling or mix, which looks similar but can have added sugar. Keeping the can of pumpkin in the fridge before using helps make a colder smoothie. Perfect for a fall afternoon!
