Great Plains Leadership Institute Graudated 14th Cohort!
The Great Plains Leadership Institute (GPLI), offered by the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s College of Public Health, works to train and equip professionals to become leaders in population health and health care.
GPLI recently graduated its 14th cohort of scholars, signifying their continued commitment to shaping and improving the public health workforce throughout the Great Plains Region.
As the institute kicked off their 15th cohort, one participant stated, “There are amazing people in this cohort. I'll learn as much from them as the content presented.”
The Institute is designed for emerging, mid-level and senior leaders from the Great Plains Region – Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, South Dakota and beyond – who play essential roles in keeping communities healthy.
Institute participants come from local and state governmental public health, insurance companies, community health centers, civic and elected positions, community-based organizations, the business community and more.
