Leadership Development Opportunities

Being a member of the Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute has been an exciting and wonderful experience, both personally and professionally. It has revitalized interests that I had developed while completing my Master's degree in Public Administration. Public policy development and implementation have always been interesting to me and the opportunity to be exposed to new policy trends and systems thinking has been invaluable. I am especially grateful for the opportunity to be able to share what I have learned at EPHLI with my staff and co-workers here at ADEC. Thank you for providing the opportunity to participate in the second class of the Environmental Public Health Institute; it has been an amazing year.
