For more than 100 years, Colorado Springs has drawn visitors from not just the United States but from around the world as patients search for health professionals and fresh mountain air. The climate and sunshine attracted patients looking for a cure for tuberculosis in the early 20th century, and the city has only built on its appeal since then.

As an Olympic city, medical professionals have come to Colorado Springs, and the medical tourism field continues to flourish, particularly with new investments like the Hybl Center, which promises programs that will not only help athletes recover from injuries, but new heights as well Reach lows and set new records.

The latest from a series of events marking the city’s 200th anniversary will bring together experts from UCCS, Centura Health and others to examine the topic of medical tourism and its past, present and future.

The event is due to be broadcast live on YouTube from 6 p.m. on May 25 and is free to the public. The panel consists of Andrew Subudhi, Chair of the Department of Human Physiology and Nutrition; Kevin Lesh, primary care physician and sports medicine doctor at Centura Health; Chris Valentine, Assistant Vice Chancellor, Marketing and Communications, UCCS; and Doug Price, President and CEO of Visit Colorado Springs.
