Emerging Leaders in Public Health
African Americans, Native Americans/ Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiian/ Pacific Islanders, Asian Americans, and Hispanics are under-represented in public health leadership. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's program Emerging Leaders in Public Health (ELPH) is designed to prepare the next generation of public health leaders by identifying and training those individuals with the talent to serve in significant leadership capacities in the next decade.
This nine-month intensive program is targeted towards minority individuals who are committed to careers in public health. Scholars learn the essential skills necessary for leading and managing in a turbulent public health environment through a combination of on-site intensive workshops, personalized coaching, action learning teams and individualized leadership coaching.
