Leadership Development Opportunities

The Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute (EPHLI) provided me with the opportunity to meet and learn with some of the brightest people working in the field of environmental public health. EPHLI provided me with the tools to evaluate who I am as a person and as a professional which is critical to understanding how I’m viewed by my peers and colleagues. The Action-Learning and Systems Thinking teachings of the Institute were invaluable and will remain a part of my professional life throughout my career. There is no doubt that EPHLI is the premier leadership development course for environmental public health professionals in existence today.
