Terms of Service as of 3/29/2023

RIHEL is a nonprofit organization incorporated in the State of Colorado. The major academic affiliates of RIHEL, in which most of the RIHEL faculty hold appointments, include the University of Colorado – Colorado School of Public Health and the University of Denver. We are grateful to the University of Denver for their generous donation of office space and work infrastructure.
RIHEL provides leadership training, builds linkages among leaders, and strengthens the relationships among health professionals, environment professionals, the academic community, the public sector and the private sector. The Institute was founded and sustained for fourteen years by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Financial support for the Institute has been provided by the many sources included in the “Sponsors” section.

To attend a workshop or class, the student will sign up using a third- party service called Neon. A link is provided to Neon for each workshop on the RIHEL website at https://www.rihel.org when signing up for a workshop.

Our classes are held in-person or online. In-person classes are at various locations in Colorado and New Mexico.
