Leadership Development Opportunities

The EPHLI has opened many doors for me, and has enabled me to develop personally and professionally. I have learned a great deal about myself, as well as others, which has helped me to further develop my leadership skills, such as conflict management and public speaking. Thank you for the opportunity and the experience.
