Iowa Public Health Leadership Academy

The Public Health Leadership Academy - a collaboration with the University of Iowa College of Public Health, Iowa State Association of Counties and the Iowa Department of Public Health - provides information and training to local Iowa Boards of Health members and Boards of Supervisors to assist them in effectively meeting the requirements of their roles.


The Academy is a free training program, with an orientation session and six virtual sessions from November 2019-July 2020. Each session offers a comprehensive overview of Iowa's governmental public health system, the roles elected and appointed officials have within that system, as well as topics that members face while fulfilling their roles in governing local public health.

Register by October 31
