Indigenous Public Health Leaders Program

About the Indigenous Public Health Leaders Program

The Indigenous Public Health Leadership Program is a leadership training institute for emerging tribal public health professionals that are in entry to mid-level positions within tribal health/tribal public health organizations or are otherwise serving tribal populations.

Emerging tribal public health professionals are staff/personnel currently working across programs and services working on public health efforts and related health issues. For example, Good Health and Wellness coalitions members, wrap around service providers, community health representatives, or medical/behavioral health managers/directors.

The program is 6-months long (February – July 2023) and provides training in core public health competencies with a focus on key issues impacting tribal communities including mental health and resilience, emergency preparedness, and increased communication and collaboration amongst stakeholders. The Institute will feature a virtual and in-person component for participants.
