Map of Findings
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….
– Bobby Pestronk
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
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
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.
287 provided detailed responses about organizations, programs, policies, collaborations, 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.
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.
Leader Development and Network Development were mutually supportive
Created fertile ground for diffusion of innovations
