Notice to Readers Public Health Leadership Institute

The CDC/University of California Public Health Leadership Institute is a 1-year program designed to strengthen the U.S. public health system by enhancing the leadership capacities of city, county, and state public health officials. Major themes for the institute are leadership and practice, technologic change, communications and information, political and social change, and creativity in public health.

Fifty state and local senior health officials will be selected to participate in the institute. Each scholar will conduct a personal management and leadership assessment, use self-study packets, participate in interactive computer conferences with other scholars, complete a learning project, and attend an on-site program to be held March 8-13, 1992, in Santa Cruz, California.

The institute is a collaborative effort between CDC and the Western Consortium for Public Health, which represents the Schools of Public Health at two University of California campuses (Los Angeles and Berkeley) and at San Diego State University. It is being developed under a cooperative agreement between CDC's Public Health Practice Program Office and the Western Consortium.

Applications are being accepted from senior health officials of state and local public health agencies to participate as scholars. Applications are due October 11, 1991. Scholars will be selected by the end of October. Additional information and applications are available from the Director, Public Health Leadership Institute, telephone (916) 448-7891, or CDC's Division of Public Health Systems, Public Health Practice Program Office, telephone (404) 639-1967.
