Rebecca Laurie, Director of Communications for DORA joins us along with Karen McGovern, the Deputy Director of Programs and Legal Affairs at the Division of Professions and Occupations (DPO). DPO provides consumer protection through its regulation of approximately 450,000 licensees within more than 50 professions, occupations, and entities in the State of Colorado.
Karen will discuss the connection between legislation that is passed by the General Assembly, how DPO implements that legislation, and considerations that are taken to reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens and support a healthy economic climate. She'll discuss efforts to provide career transition services for military and veterans, the ongoing battle to fight opioid abuse with the prescription drug monitoring program, initiatives to expand healthcare access via telehealth, and more.
