Events like 9/11, healthcare reform, and severe budget deficits have drastically transformed the business of public health and fueled the demand for more leadership skills to address these changes.

Join us for a special Northwest Public Health Leadership Institute webinar with Louis Rowitz, PhD, who will explore the principles of leadership, especially in relationship to preparedness, and how they can be applied in the public health setting.

It also offers a closer look at building infrastructure, using accreditation standards, and developing global public health leaders.
