After much consideration and with public health as our top priority, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Shared Risk and Protective Factors Conference due to the Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). CDPHE’s Prevention Services Division is canceling all large gatherings, trainings, and conferences through the end of May based on public health and social distancing recommendations. We hope that an early decision to cancel this conference in May can help local communities better plan and adjust for the remainder of the fiscal year. We also know that many local public health agency staff are being drafted into their local outbreak response.
If you had registered:
We will provide details in the days to come regarding how attendees who are already registered can receive a partial refund, subtracting $13.50 from each person who registered to cover the costs incurred for processing, transaction and credit card fees. If you registered 5 people, the fee will be $67.50. We apologize that we cannot issue full refunds due to these costs.
Canceling Hotel Rooms
Please call the Keystone reservation desk at (800) 355-8471 or Hyatt Place Keystone reservations at number listed on confirmation email to cancel your room reservation and be refunded your $50 deposit.
Those of you who planned on attending a grantee meeting, the youth gathering, or the PYD TOT meeting on day 1: you will hear from your state contacts soon regarding any plans to conduct a meeting virtually. Virtual meetings will be held on a case-by-case basis.
Our sincerest appreciation to all of you who have helped in the planning for the conference, agreed to present, sit on a panel, display a poster, host a gathering, and much more. Your contributions were going to make our 4th annual conference a success. We will keep your expertise, submissions and contributions in mind for the next conference we plan.
Thank you all for your understanding of this situation. We hope to see you at the next Shared Risk and Protective Factor conference.

The Shared Risk and Protective Factors Conference attracts adults and young people from across Colorado actively engaged in upstream or primary prevention efforts at the state and local level. By applying a ‘shared risk and protective factors’ lens, we can positively impact young people through reducing risk behaviors and increasing protective factors in the family, school, and community. This conference recognizes the importance of health equity and seeks to incorporate discussion of health equity in all sessions. This event aims to strengthen collaboration efforts across organizations and funders; build skills to enhance implementation of evidence-based prevention practices, policies, and programs; and highlight successful efforts of community-led coalitions.
This conference is intended for people currently actively engaged in creating connected communities and safe, healthy, and successful youth using a shared risk and protective factor upstream prevention approach, including stakeholders of the following grant programs:
|Child Fatality Prevention System||Opioid Overdose Prevention Program|
|Collaborative Management Program||Sexual Violence Prevention|
|Communities that Care||Substance Abuse Prevention|
|Department of Education||Suicide Prevention|
|Department of Transportation||Tony Grampsas Youth Services Program|
|Essentials for Childhood||Violence & Injury Prevention|
|Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Systems||Youth Partners|
|Maternal and Child Health||and many more|
|Office of Behavioral Health|
