Course Description
Events like 9/11, healthcare reform, and severe budget deficits have drastically transformed the business of public health and fueled the demand for more leadership skills to address these changes. Join us for a special Northwest Public Health Leadership Institute webinar with Louis Rowitz, PhD, who will explore the principles of leadership, especially in relationship to preparedness, and how they can be applied in the public health setting.

Dr. Rowitz will discuss the latest edition of his classic book, Public Health Leadership: Putting Principles Into Practice, which features extensive coverage of the leadership skills and tools needed to manage public health emergencies. It also offers a closer look at building infrastructure, using accreditation standards, and developing global public health leaders. The moderator, Ray M. (Bud) Nicola, MD, MHSA, FACPM, will also provide additional insights for those interested in applying for the Northwest Public Health Leadership Institute.
