Leadership Development Efforts

The American Public Health Association (APHA) is an Affiliate member of the National Public Health Leadership Development Network (NLN).  APHA supports the mission of the Network which is: “to build public health leadership capacity by sustaining a collaborative and vibrant learning community of leadership programs in order to improve health outcomes.”

APHA provides opportunities to the NLN at our annual meetings to lead discussions on leadership issues in public health that serve to strengthen the performance and effectiveness of public health systems and public health agencies.

Several articles have been published by members of this Network.
