North Carolina Public Health Leadership Institute 2017

March 2017- March 2018

Overview

The North Carolina Public Health Leadership Institute is a NEW program supported by the North Carolina Division of Public Health and the NC Public Health Association to facilitate leadership development among public health professionals in North Carolina. This program is designed to foster increased communication between state and local public health professionals, particularly those who are emerging leaders, with a focus on enhancing adaptive leadership skills.

Each year a small cohort of scholars, half from the state health department and half from local health departments, will participate in a year-long leadership program which includes two short in-person sessions and a series of online webinar sessions supplemented by selected readings and coaching.

The North Carolina Public Health Leadership Institute is applicable to employees of state and local public health agencies in North Carolina with some previous public health management experience. Preference will be given to those candidates with at least 2 years of public health management experience.
