Accelerating Multi-Sectoral Leadership for Health
The National Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health (NLAPH) is a one-year applied leadership training program designed to build leadership capacity and strengthen multi-sector collaboration within community health initiatives across the country. Since 2012, NLAPH has trained 125 teams and 600+ leaders from 44 states and territories. Over 90% of participants reported that the NLAPH model is effective and sufficient in supporting intersectoral leadership development. Most participants (97%) would recommend the program to their colleagues.
NLAPH participants are making a difference: 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, and increased lead screening rates from 80% to 100% in New Jersey’s Burlington County.
