Leadership Development Opportunities

My participation over the past year in Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute has been a worth while and extremely rewarding endeavor. The guidance and support provided by the EPHLI faculty and staff, my IDP coach, my mentor, and my teammates helped make my project a success. The project’s results promise to continue to benefit my agency and me for many years to come. The institute provided me with wonderful opportunities to meet, learn from, and to be challenged by many wonderful and talented professionals from across the county. As an alumnus, I look forward to continuing these relationships and benefiting from what I learned this year.
