What Participants Are Saying About NLAPH....
The program model is effective and sufficient in supporting intersectoral leadership development.
NLAPH contributed a great deal to our team's development and progress on our project.
I would recommend the NLAPH program to colleagues.
"The program brought the team together and engaged them in a commitment that cemented the team for long-term performance. That commitment has been the impetus for others to want to be engaged and participating."
