Center for Health Leadership and Practice
Today's public health challenges are complex and rapidly evolving, and they call for a new approach to leadership development. The Center for Health Leadership and Practice (CHLP) brings leaders together to improve population health in their communities. Using diverse strategies, we lead programs for teams, coalitions, initiatives and professional networks. Current and previous partners include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The California Endowment, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and Kaiser Permanente Community Benefits Southern California.
California Leadership Academy for the Public's Health
The California Leadership Academy for the Public's Health (CaLAPH) works with teams across California to address social determinants of health and work toward health in all policies. Many of the multi-sector teams are from The California Endowment's Building Healthy Communities sites. CaLAPH provides teams with leadership training via coaching, webinars and retreats to achieve improvements in population health in their communities. Each team works on an applied health leadership project.
