The Public Health Leadership Academy held its second session April 29 through May 1 in Athens. Multi-sector teams from five communities will spend the next nine months learning how to use a collaborative impact approach to build a culture of health in their home regions. The 19 participants include representatives from public health, banking, youth development, education and more. Louise Hill and Carolina Darbisi serve as co-leads from the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development for the program. Fanning faculty Maritza Soto-Keen and Janet Rechtman also facilitated the first session.
