Today’s context for public health leadership is complex, rapidly evolving, and calls for new approaches to the development of leaders for today and the future. The National Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health (NLAPH) offers an innovative style of leadership development by bringing together teams of leaders from multiple sectors to actively engage their communities to achieve health equity. NLAPH is implemented by the Center for Health Leadership and Practice (CHLP), a Center of the Public Health Institute (PHI). The program uses blended learning modalities to advance individual and team leadership skills, including a webinar series, leadership retreat, coaching support, and peer networking. Leadership practice is further refined and deepened as teams works together on an applied health leadership project to improve population health.
