Leadership Development Opportunities
The Environmental Pubic Health Leadership Institute (EPHLI) provided me an opportunity that I feel could not be replicated within my Public Health Department. Curriculum developed within the Institute made you think outside the box and develop methods needed to improve the Public Health Department. Many times I have felt one dimential at the my Health Department, but EPHLI has helped me to know that I have opportunities to change and develop our Health Department into something special.
Through the help of Mentors, Fellows, and Coaches, I have tapped into skills that I didn't even know existed. My coach was more than enthusiastic to lead my Individual Development Plan on the right track. EPHLI has made me into a professional that feels capable of changing the Public Health profession, where before it felt hopeless.
