Leadership Development Opportunities

Participation in the EPHLI institute has helped in many ways, first, the recognition that others that you respect, believe you to be a leader or future leader gives you confidence to be that leader. The networking with the Faculty, Mentors and individuals from the CDC is invaluable, you find so many ideas and suggestions on how to work through a difficult problem that you are facing when speaking with them. I found the seminars on conflict management that were presented in St. Louis to be very beneficial and I have started to use those techniques in my life.
