More about NLAPH
Since 2012, the Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health (LAPH) has brought together leaders from multiple sectors including health, housing, education, transportation, and law enforcement to build their own capacity to transform their communities, improve health, and advance equity.
LAPH drives the adoption of evidence-based policies and practices into communities, better aligns community health resources, and ultimately improves health outcomes through sustainable policy and systems change.
- Provides ongoing training and support to leaders who work across multiple sectors to address community health issues.
- Improves the leadership team’s capacities to apply continuous quality improvement methodology to their work, measure progress of the projects, and document the impact of leadership development.
- Builds and supports the development of a community of multi-sector leadership learners using online technology and social media tools that will contribute to community health improvement goals and influence policy change.

The NLAPH approach to transforming communities into healthier environments emphasizes multi-sector leadership development.
Our unique, evidence-based leadership development program offers an innovative approach to collaborating across sectors, co-designing with communities, and creating sustainable change.

This program was transformative for me and for our rural community. I credit it with opening doors to national funding opportunities such as the Robert Wood Johnson-funded “Raising Places” effort. It sparked an intellectual curiosity that has expanded my leadership capacity while also nurturing a deep-seated sense of joy and purpose. I can’t thank the Academy enough!NLAPH Cohort Fellow
