The National and California Leadership Academies for the Public’s Health (NLAPH and CaLAPH) are one-year applied leadership training programs designed to build leadership capacity and strengthen multi-sector collaboration within community health initiatives across the country.

Since 2012, these leadership academies have trained 671 leaders from 144 community teams from 45 states and territories. According to the most recent alumni survey report, 95% of alumni indicated that they have continued to apply lessons and tools from the Academy; 82% reported that participating in the Academy had a positive impact on their career, and nearly all (97%) would recommend the program to their colleagues.

NLAPH and CaLAPH participants are making a real difference in their communities. Teams have:

  • tripled the number of underrepresented medical residents at the Medical University of South Carolina;
  • helped pass a NYC-wide law restricting tobacco purchases for people under 21;
  • increased lead screening rates from 80% to 100% in New Jersey’s Burlington County; and
  • implemented Health in All Policies (HiAP) in local governments across the country.

In total, 850 ideas of ingenuity have been generated through CHLP program participation—resulting in systems and policy changes that have impacted 37 million people.
