Notice to Readers: Availability of Applications for the Public Health Leadership Institute

The Public Health Leadership Institute (PHLI), sponsored by CDC in partnership with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Public Health and Kenan-Flagler Business School, and the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, North Carolina, is a 2-year program that includes an intensive onsite week scheduled for May 20--25, 2001. Deadline for application is February 16.

The purpose of PHLI is to strengthen the nation's public health system by enhancing the leadership capacities of senior health officials. The program will target leading public health professionals practicing in public and private institutional settings. Because the focus of activity in the emerging public health environment occurs in a multi-institutional system, the program will be composed of leadership teams that will include at least two senior professionals from separate institutions that serve the needs of a common population.

The onsite week will be held at the Paul J. Rizzo Conference Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and will include discussions of challenges facing public health leaders in the 21st century and development of skills and competencies required to face those challenges. Other parts of the curriculum will be structured around leaders' imperative to build effective teams, lead organizational change, and serve as boundary spanners to build alliances to improve the health of the public. Following the onsite week, teams will begin the distance learning phase, which includes seminars, use of LEAD (a desktop tool for on-the-job support for building leadership skills and promoting positive change), and completion of a leadership project in the population they serve. During the second year of the program, participants will work with state or regional leadership institutes in their geographic areas.

Additional information and applications are available on the World-Wide Web, Each applicant should submit an application and list the other team member names.
