Leadership Development Opportunities

Being a member of the Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute has provided me with a wealth of leadership tools.  The systems thinking and other problem-solving strategies learned during the course of this fellowship are applicable to my job responsibilities and I have been able to incorporate them into work on various projects.  Networking with the other fellows has taught me that even though we come from many different areas of the country and work for diverse institutions, we all face the same types of problems.
