North Carolina Public Health Leadership Institute
The North Carolina Public Health Leadership Institute is a year-long leadership development program for public health professionals from the North Carolina Division of Public Health and local public health agencies across the state. This program provides a unique opportunity for state and local practitioners to come together to network with each other, learn about adaptive leadership skills and apply those skills to a relevant challenge in their organization or community.
Past participants have commented that the leadership skills and abilities they developed in this program include: resilience, communication, collaboration, creating a shared vision and embracing change.
The traditional NCPHLI program will be on pause for 2022-23. Instead, in recognition of the issues around equity that have been elevated during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the extraordinary ongoing pressures on North Carolina Public Health professionals, we will be offering a new program, NCPHLI: Leading with Equity.
