About the National Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health (NLAPH)
Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and implemented by Public Health Institute, the National Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health (NLAPH) began in 2011 to provide training to four-person multi-sector teams from across the country to advance their leadership skills and achieve health equity in their community. This one-year program uses an experiential learning process that includes:
- A multi-day retreat,
- Coaching support,
- Peer networking, and
- An applied population health project.
The purpose of this training is to improve population health by training the current and future public health and healthcare workforce, in partnership with communities and other sectors, through applied team-based collaborative leadership development to solve complex problems in innovative ways that can drive adoption of evidenced-based policies and practices into communities, bring primary care and public health into better alignment, and ultimately improve health outcomes.
