PUBLIC HEALTH LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
Plains Public Health Leadership Institute
The innovated curriculum of the Great Plains PHLI is designed to address a set of established Core Public Health Leadership Competencies. Strengthening the competencies is done with three multi-day residential skills building sessions, self assessment, journaling, and monthly Intersession Conference Calls. In addition, the GPPHLI offers very unique opportunities in peer coaching and advanced cross regional leadership sessions. Each scholar applies their leadership skills by developing and executing a group-based project related to public health and leadership. After graduating from the Great Plains Public Health Leadership Institute, each alumnus becomes a member of the Great Plains Public Health Leadership Academy. Alumni are invited to special residential and distance leadership opportunities to continue to advance and strengthen their leadership for the public’s health.
The Great Plains Public Health Leadership Institute was established in 2005 under the auspices of the Nebraska Educational Alliance for Public Health Impact (NEAPHI), a collaborative partnership of over 30 academic and practice organizations focused on public health workforce training and education. The Great Plains Public Health Leadership Institute is supported in part by funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Upper Midwest Public Health Training Center at the University of Iowa, Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. Additional in-kind support comes from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, CityMatCH and other Nebraska Educational Alliance for Public Health Impact member organizations.
