Leadership Development Opportunities
As a participant in the Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute I have had the privelege not only to improve upon my own skills and abilities but to learn from my peers as they develop their skills and abilities. While leadership has many common themes it is important to recognize that while carrying out activities each leader is uniquely able to address an issue or problem based on their own characteristics. I am now much better equipped to work with other leaders having a better understanding of myself and having had the opportunity to work my peers, each with their own unique abilities.
