What I Learned at EPHLI
The Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute has offered me a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet environmental public health professionals that I would have never met otherwise. The Institute has challenged my abilities to think through a problem(s) and look for solutions using a systematic approaches and various modeling techniques. It has provided guidance through personal and professional assessment tools (Skillscope is outstanding), which I have found to be invaluable.
Classroom instruction, open dialogue, field trips, have all made for an interesting year. It has been challenging, motivating, thought-provoking, fun, and worth every minute. Life isn’t always about a larger paycheck. Life is a journey and this learning opportunity has been a privilege. I’m glad I had the opportunity to take advantage of it.
