The Satcher Health Leadership Institute (SHLI) is now accepting applications for the 2021 Community Health Leadership Program (CHLP). The SHLI-CHLP is designed to close the gap between academic medicine or academic health centers and the communities of greatest need by connecting to people who are most affected by disparities. The goal is to develop and/or enhance community health leaders who are educated, motivated, and mobilized to lead community groups in changing health behavior, improving environmental health, and influencing policies to support community health. The 2021 cohort will be held from February 26 – April 16, 2021.
The SHLI-CHLP is an 8-session training that is held every Friday for 8 weeks. The program is focused on developing community health leaders, such as: community advocates, leaders of non-profit organizations, and faith-based representatives. The community participants partner in developing community projects that are relevant to the community needs, show evidence of sustainability, and impact health disparities. Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this program will be held virtually via video conference, details to follow.
