Someone understood that our work as governmental public health officials was important, that we were important, and that we should be exposed to cutting edge thought. We were taken seriouslyand encouraged to speak out….

validation understanding and courage
Validation, Understanding, and Courage

We were treated like we mattered… The most vivid learning was Peter Senge and systems thinking… that… gave me a lot of confidence … that there was actually some merit to the way I saw [systems development]… [And] I needed to say that rather than be cautious about it.

- Susan Allan

Network, Identity, and Action

I developed an incredible and permanent personal and professional

connection to other scholars across the nation … I became passionate about my role as a leader…. I became actively involved in NACCHO … [and] in 2003 became president. [Without] PHLI, I may never have realized my potential as a national leader. – Jody Hershey

network development
Network Development
  • Scholars emphasized the benefits of network development
  • Leadership networks were strengthened at national, state, and local levels
  • Formal networks were established directly related to PHLI – PHLS, NLN
benefits of network development
Benefits of Network Development
  • Learning from one another during PHLI
  • Long-term knowledge sharing
  • Social support for courageous action
  • Being introduced to formal opportunities for collaborations (e.g. with NACCHO, ASTHO, PHLS)
networks influenced member thinking and actions
Networks Influenced Member Thinking and Actions

Through PHLI, I met other PH leaders across the country, and have maintained friendships with them since 1997. This network of accomplished leaders has been an invaluable source of advice, best practices, referrals, and support… a leadership network has been essential in my career.

leadership networks were strengthened
Leadership Networks Were Strengthened
  • National – professional associations – e.g. NACCHO, ASTHO, NALBOH

Describe ONE of those in some detail and explain how PHLI contributed…

287 provided detailed responses about organizations, programs, policies, collaborations, systems changes

national systems changes
National Systems Changes

[A] reconceptualization of the public health system following [the 1988] IOM Future of Public Health report. Early graduates and subsequent graduates have been the “thought leaders” advancing the reconceptualization. [This is important because it] has helped a whole new generation of public health officials rethink their work.

national systems changes1
National Systems Changes

PHLI brought PH leaders together to share experiences, become true colleagues, and create a common ideal for WHAT public health could become. I do not believe we would have pushed public health in the direction of creating a national accreditation system … without the efforts and vision of PHLI graduates.

state and local changes
State and Local Changes
  • Many implementations of Ten Essential Services, Performance Standards, Accreditation
  • Many were reorganizations of state and local systems and organizations
  • Instigated by individuals, teams, and critical masses of graduates
ideas for the future
Ideas for the Future
  • Offer a continuum: PHLI, continuing ed, informal learning - vibrant networks
  • Integrate LD at national and state levels
  • Strengthen networks: succession planning and national issues work
  • Strengthen evaluation
  • Try to improve funding
