Since 1991, we have pioneered the field of health leadership by training, supporting, and coaching leaders to transform their communities into healthier places to live, work, and play.
Developing public health leaders, creating change, and reducing health inequities
Since 2011, NLAPH has provided training to four-person multi-sector teams from across the country to advance their leadership skills and achieve health equity in their community. Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the one-year program uses an experiential learning process that includes webinars, a multi-day retreat, coaching support, peer networking, and an applied health leadership project.
CaLAPH trains teams across California to address social determinants of health and to work towards health in all policies in their community.

We are always looking to identify potential coaches who stretch our thinking and bring varied experience and assets to our leadership work...
