Leadership Development Opportunities

My participation in the Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute has had a huge impact on my professional and personal life.  Studying my own and other's leadership traits has increased my capacity to perform problem solving and make positive change in my organization. My individual development plan also encouraged me to be the agent of change as a professional and as a person.  Being just a fellow alone and gathering these benefits would have been well worth my time, but the honor to interact and network with such a  diverse and extremely intelligent cohort, faculty and mentors has made the experience that much more valuable.
