In addition to local public health, Ms. Jollon’s recent roles include serving as President of the Colorado Association of Local Public Health Officials. Ms. Jollon was also named a member of the Aspen Institute’s inaugural class of the Colorado Children and Families Health and Human Services Fellowship and was appointed by Governor Jared Polis to serve on the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission at the time the Commission was charged with implementing sweeping mission change to better protect health of Coloradans.

Ms. Jollon has also held recent appointments serving as a board member for organizations including federally qualified health centers and community mental health, the Denver Foundation’s Colorado Health Access Fund, and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Cancer, Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Disease Grants Program.
