The 2013 Leadership Institute Scholars

Thirteen public health practitioners graduated this month from NWCPHP’s Leadership Institute, leaving with more than a certificate of completion. Each scholar developed a leadership project that related to his or her workplace.

April 30, 2013

When 13 public health practitioners from the Northwest region graduated this month from NWCPHP’s Northwest Public Health Leadership Institute, they took with them more than a certificate of completion.

Each scholar developed a leadership project in his or her workplace, ranging from work that “shifted the curve” to systems thinking and multi-disciplinary teams, to realigning programs and offices to improve service delivery and make staff process improvements. More detail on the scholars' inspiring projects can be found at the most recent posting of Take the Lead, the center’s blog on Leadership and Public Health.

We congratulate all the scholars graduating from this year’s 2012–13 cohort: Theresa Adkinson; Maria Courogen, MPH; Jessica Duke, MPH; Pam Dykes, MPH; Jaime Harding, MHS, CHES; Diane Markus; Todd Phillips, RS; Rowena Pineda, MEd; Sherry Reynolds; Shawta Sackett, MPH; Peggy Slider, RN, MS; Jeff Sogo, RN; and Zekkethal Vargas-Thomas. In addition to developing workplace leadership projects, the scholars progressed through a project-based leadership curriculum and developed their own personal leadership development plans.

The next cohort of the Northwest Public Health Leadership Institute runs from August 2013 through April 2014. The Leadership Institute is a blended program with face-to-face and online components, designed for experienced public health professionals in the Northwest region who want to tackle real-world public health leadership issues.
