National Leadership Academy for Community Health Improvement

Association for Community Health Improvement and the Public Health Institute are proud to announce a new professional development program that will build advanced skills for Hospital Community Benefits professionals that advance leadership knowledge, attitude and practices and accelerate the impact of hospital community benefits investments. The Affordable Care Act places significant responsibility on nonprofit hospitals to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment, involving community and public health sectors, to inform the hospital’s plan for working towards community health improvement. The National Leadership Academy for Community Health Improvement (NLACHI) will work with Community Benefits leaders to build and strengthen the skills necessary to help move this ambitious undertaking with focus on effective partnerships and results.

Participants will: 

  • Improve their individual leadership skills.
  • Sharpen their ability to work across sectors with diverse stakeholders and work collectively to leverage community resources with hospital resources for maximum impact.
  • Learn how to apply continuous improvement principles to community benefits programs. 


More information on this program will be available soon.
