Leadership Development Opportunities
The opportunity to participate as a fellow in the Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute has helped me further my network of both resources and colleagues. The experiences and activities will be implemented in my work coordinating the Kansas Environmental Leadership Program (KELP). The session on environmental ethics was especially memorable; this topic is not commonly discussed. Ethics should be part of every environmental health professional’s actions.
