What I Learned at EPHLI

Participating in the Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute has been a great opportunity for me to expand my existing skills as well as develop new ones. While I have had many leadership opportunities over the years, I have never worked on a project which would potentially have such a significant impact on the future of Environmental Health in South Carolina. Participation in the institute and this project provided me with this opportunity. It allowed me to co-lead a diverse team and to help create a shared vision of what we wanted Environmental Health in South Carolina to look like in the future. The skills that I learned through the institute about Systems Thinking allowed me to apply these newly learned techniques to problem analysis.

 

The institute also provided me the opportunity to share ideas and gain new information from exceptional Environmental Health professionals from across the country. This opportunity in itself made participation worthwhile. The curriculum overall was excellent and addressed a broad range of topics that are important for today’s Environmentalist.
