Leadership Development Opportunities

I am proud to have been able to work with such wonderful people as those who have spent this past year in EPHLI.  This has been a rigorous, yet rewarding adventure.  I have learned to be a systems thinker which has broadened my skills as a District Supervisor in Oklahoma.  The institute allows for an opportunity to brainstorm with other professionals and create a network of friends with a common goal, that is, to improve public health.  The institute has taught me to think "big picture" rather than just locally.  I am grateful for the opportunity and want to thank all of the EPHLI staff for making this a very productive year.
