Emerging Leaders in Public Health is designed to develop local public health leaders in pairs. This team of leaders challenge and support each other, and build skills and competencies together. Each team is composed of a health officer, the top leader in the organization, collaborating with a co-leader identified as an emerging leader from the same organization. 

In addition to receiving leadership coaching and development, each team receives a grant up to $125,000 to develop and implement a transformative concept designed to deliver a new model of public health for its community.
