Joe Sarcone, MSPH, RS
Joe Sarcone has worked at the interface of government with the indigenous people of the Pacific, Africa and
Leadership Development Opportunities
The opportunity to participate in EPHLI comes at a critical time in my twenty-five (25) year career in government working with underserved populations. Work on environmental public health issues at this interface can be overwhelming and presents a continuous challenge in maintaining the energy needed to be effective. The EPHLI experience has restored my energy for the work and increased my effectiveness in carrying out the responsibilities of my position. The skills learned through participation in the Institute will help me to create and promote a vision for improved environmental health status for the Alaska Native villages I now serve and for others I will serve in the future.
