For pre-emerging institutes
Our group wants to form a public health institute. How should we vet organizational development and business strategies?
In “Module 2.0: Readiness, Entrepreneurial Leadership, and Choosing Business Strategies,” see interviews of other public health institute CEOs to learn about their leadership approaches and discover practical strategies for the early stages of public health institute development.
Learn more about this module in a webinar hosted by Karen Minyard, Executive Director, Georgia Health Policy Center.
For Emerging Institutes
When it comes to creating new business opportunities for my public health institute, who should be on the advisory board?
In “Module 3.0: Leveraging Partnerships and Alliances” review several case studies that demonstrate time tested approaches to working with in and out of the public health field.

For Established Institutes
How can we fund and sustain a thriving public health institute?
In “Module 4.0: Funding” see strategies for exploring non-traditional approaches to funding organizational support and, in turn, population health improvement. The module includes links to leading agencies in creative organizational financing.
