Leadership Development Opportunities

Participating in the Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute has been a great experience on so many levels.  The opportunity to hone my skills by participating in the sessions and completing the assignments has been invaluable to me.  The self-assessments allowed me to better understand how I interact with others.  EPHLI has given me the chance to meet and work with great people from all over our nation.  These are friendships and resources that I hope to keep for the rest of my career. 

 

I must thank my Mentor, Dwayne Roadcap, my fellow team members, Mary Helen Smith and Peggy Keller, and the organizers at EPHLI including the staff at St. Louis University and the CDC.  Their support and guidance have made this pathway easier to traverse.

 

I hope to continue to use the tools I have gained in EPHLI to further advance my self study and to use the tools gained in and outside of my professional life.
