  2. 2. RURAL HEALTH INSTITUTE The Rural Health Institute addresses the training needs of public health professionals in rural Illinois by sponsoring an annual conference in early March. The 3d Annual Rural Health Institute was recently held in Effingham, IL. Conference proceedings are available at publichealthtraining.com. Conference topics are determined by a statewide panel of rural health academics and practitioners. If you are interested in participating in the planning of the 2008 conference please contact us. ICHLD The International Center for Health Leadership Development (ICHLD) is designed to bring together community organizations from across the public health system in a collaborative environment. Teams representing social service organizations, maternal and child health professionals, WIC providers, healthcare delivery organizations, and governmental public health design unique projects to address public health concerns at the community level. ICHLD started as a project funded by the Kellogg Foundation. Funding is currently being sought to continue to build ICHLD (see ICHLD website). PUBLIC HEALTH MANAGEMENT ACDADEMY The Public Health Management Academy is a training program for new program managers, which offers the opportunity to learn management strategies and techniques, along with skills in the use of data for program planning and evaluation. Teams representing jurisdictions or areas of professional interest are brought together to creatively address current public health issues. Fellows receive training in basic management skills, data analysis, program planning, and business plan development. At the end of the year-long program, Fellows will develop a strategic response to a critical need, and provide a plan for funding and sustainability. The Public Health Management Academy provides training across the public health system, from local governmental agencies, maternal and child health agencies, social service agencies, and community nonprofit organizations. As a result of the team approach in the learning design, valuable linkages are developed across the public health system. The design of the Academy provides training in management and program planning for public health professionals working in state/county/local health departments and community based organizations. This will be accomplished by: (1) promoting data-driven community planning and collaboration; (2) developing community based programs aimed at the improvement in health outcomes; and (3) improving fiscal management and program planning. The training program will be facilitated by a cadre of UIC faculty and
  3. 3. external consultants. Together they will examine the characteristics, skills, attributes, and best practices of effective public health management and administration. The Management Academy consists of a combination of online and face-to-face learning opportunities. On-site conferences include: The Kick-Off Meeting brings Fellows together for three and one-half days to receive an orientation to the year long fellowship. Training topics include Needs Assessment, Program Planning and Evaluation, Principles of Management, Strategic Planning and Marketing. These topics are presented in the context of current public health strategic management methods (Mobilizing Action for Planning and Partnerships, MAPP). Each Fellow will then develop a program with an outside partner(s) that addresses a public health issue in their community. Each fellow will work to complete a program plan between the Kick-Off Meeting and Six Month Meeting. The Six Month Meeting provides Fellows with the opportunity to present their program plan their colleagues and to the Faculty. Training workshops continue to build business management skills, including business plan development and principles of budgeting and human resources. Between the six and twelve month meetings, the Fellows will work with their teams to create a business plan for their program. The Twelve Month Meeting will bring the Fellows together for 2 days where they will present their Business Plan to a panel of experts. The year long fellowship will conclude with a grant writing workshop to assist Fellows in securing program funding. PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGING LEADERS INSTITUTE The Emerging Leaders Institute is an orientation for public health managers that have recently become (or may become) new leaders within their agencies or communities. The program is designed to build on the management skills presented in the Public Health Management Academy, and prepares new leaders to function effectively in a team or organizational environment. In recognition that public health practice is a collective response to community health issues, the Emerging Leaders Institute provides training to a variety of public health stakeholder organizations. The Emerging Leaders Institute offers a combination of online and face-to-face learning opportunities. Fellows begin their year-long program as teams, which are formed on the basis of jurisdiction or area of interest. Teams are brought together to creatively address current public health issues. Fellows receive training in introductory leadership skills, strategic management, and public health analytic skills. The Emerging Leaders Institute provides training across the public health system, from local governmental agencies, maternal and child health agencies, social service agencies, and community nonprofit organizations. As a result of the team approach in the learning design, valuable linkages are developed across the public health system.
  4. 4. The design of the Institute provides training in leadership, team building and social/emotional intelligence. Course content is provided a cadre of UIC faculty and external consultants. Fellows examine the characteristics, skills, attributes, and best practices of effective public health management and leadership. The Emerging Leaders Institute is designed to prepare the public health professional for future leadership development. MARPHLI (Main Page Content) ABOUT MARPHLI The Mid America Regional Public Health Leadership Institute (MARPHLI) is a year- long program for state and local public health department leaders, board of health members, community leaders and legislators serving all levels of the public health system. MARPHLI assists practitioners in leadership positions at all levels of the public health system to develop greater effectiveness to help their agencies carry out the public health core functions of assessment, policy development and assurance. The goal of the Institute is to train public health practitioners and their community partners to develop personal, team, agency, community and professional leadership skills. The Institute is funded with the financial support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Illinois Department of Public Health, Indiana University, the Indiana State Department of Health and the Wisconsin Division of Health. MARPHLI-Goals and Objectives MARPHLI assists practitioners in leadership positions at all levels of the public health system to develop greater effectiveness to help their agencies carry out the public health core functions of assessment, policy development and assurance. The goal of the Institute is to train public health practitioners and their community partners to develop personal, team, agency, community and professional leadership skills. By participating in MARPHLI, fellows will: • Understand the characteristics of effective public health leadership; • Expand knowledge about effective leadership practices; • Enhance leadership abilities in carrying out the public health core functions and essential services; • Learn how to successfully apply leadership skills within organizations; • Study models to apply leadership skills in the public health environment; • Create a forum for discussing leadership issues with mentors; • Develop a network of public health leaders;
  5. 5. • Strengthen relationships with academic partners; • Expand regional relationships among public health leaders; • Understand how to use various leadership tools to strengthen the infrastructure of public health. MARPHLI-How We Work In recognition of the principle that theory and research must be translated into practice, the UIC-SPH has developed a year-long leadership development program for each class of Fellows, which is facilitated and conducted by a cadre of Faculty and Mentors. Together they examine the characteristics, skills, attributes and best practices of effective public health leadership. The Institute begins with a four-day conference that kicks-off the year-long learning experience. MARPHLI conferences offer cutting-edge presentations by national public health leaders. During the conference Fellows also meet in teams with a pre-assigned Mentor to discuss leadership concepts, and to begin to develop a public health case study. The case study is one of three required assignments, and is completed in the first six months of the fellowship. Fellows are convened again at six months for a second conference to further develop leadership tools and skills. Each team presents their case study for discussion and critique by their Institute peers. Fellows also begin their second team assignment, a technical assistance project. The goal of this project is to provide a sponsoring organization with the technical resources and knowledge of a MARPHLI team. The identification of a project topic is negotiated by team members, and is presented as a poster session during the final conference. The twelve-month meeting focuses on the development of critical communication tools and skills. Fellows have the opportunity to learn from national media experts and state elected officials. During the course of the year, Fellows also produce an individual project- the Mentor/Agency project. This is similar to the technical assistance project, but is conducted on an individual basis. Fellows select a local mentor that will offer guidance in identifying a suitable project. The Mentor/Agency project provides the opportunity to apply leadership skills and technical expertise to a local problem or need. At the twelve- month meeting, Fellows will present their individual Mentor/Agency projects in a roundtable format. Mentors A fundamental component of the program is the mentoring system. Mentors are accomplished, recognized public health leaders who contribute to the development of other, less experienced leaders. Mentors serve as trusted friends and advisors. The program provides two mentors for each fellow: the Mentor Advocate and the Mentor/Agency Advisor.
  6. 6. Within the Institute's mentoring system, a small group of Fellows work together with one Mentor. This is the Mentor Advocate, who serves as teacher, counselor, friend and "encourager" to each MARPHLI team throughout the year. The Mentor Advocate fosters collaboration and facilitates the team's work on assignments, and contributes "best leadership practices" to Fellows' discussions as the case studies and technical assistance projects are developed. This relationship helps Fellows apply what they have learned. The Mentor/Agency Advisor is a senior-level professional at the Fellow's agency, and serves as a local sponsor and counselor. The Mentor/Agency Advisor, together with the Fellow, develop a shared vision about the leadership development program. He or she provides appropriate opportunities within the agency and helps the Fellow apply newfound skills at the worksite. The formal relationships established within the mentoring system last for the duration of the official Institute program year; but the formation of lifelong friendships and networking linkages is an important and sustaining by-product of the MARPHLI mentoring model. MARPHLI-Who Should Apply In recognition of the wide variety of organizations that comprise the public health system, MARPHLI is open to candidates in governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations, academia, and policy making bodies. Candidates for the Institute should hold leadership positions in local or state public health organizations and have at least five years of practice experience. It is our belief that achieving the objectives of Healthy People 2010 will be a team effort that will build public health capacity by fostering collaboration among the myriad components of the community and the public health system. We invite your application, and encourage your interest in public health.

  8. 8. Program faculty consist of academicians, practitioners and nationally known public health experts. Recognized public health practitioners in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin are often called upon as consultants or presenters. Faculty and presenters also contribute to the PHTPG journal publications, including Leadership in Public Health and Public Health Practice in Illinois. Program staff include academic professionals from the UIC School of Public Health, who design, prepare and coordinate the Institute's curriculum. Support staff are responsible for conference planning and material preparation. MARPHLI-Our Background In 1988, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) published its landmark study The Future of Public Health. The report's principal recommendations for improving the nation's health included two challenges: current public health leaders need to develop greater leadership effectiveness, and schools of public health should increase the number of leadership development opportunities they offer their practitioner colleagues. In 2000, the US Department of Health and Human Services published Healthy People 2010. One of the stated goals was to ensure that public health agencies have the infrastructure to provide essential public health services effectively. Since 1991, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has supported the University of Illinois School of Public Health (UIC-SPH) to develop public health leadership, and address the challenges posed by The Future of Public Health and Healthy People 2010. The Mid America Regional Public Health Leadership Institute (MARPHLI) is a year-long program for state and local public health department leaders, board of health members, community leaders and legislators serving all levels of the public health system. In 1996, the Illinois Department of Public Health joined the CDC in supporting the Institute. MARPHLI is also supported by the Indiana State Department of Health, Indiana University, and the Wisconsin Division of Health. In addition to the core states of Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin, MARPHLI has also trained teams from North Dakota, Massachusetts, Arkansas and Quebec.

Download a Conference Agenda (TAB: PROJECT GUIDELINES) MARPHLI combines cutting-edge public health presentations during conferences with experiential, team-based learning. Teams from our partner states complete two group projects: a public health case study, and a technical assistance project. The third MARPHLI project, a mentor/agency project, is completed individually by each Fellow. Each MARPHLI project allows the Fellow to relate relevant leadership issues to the core functions and essential services of public health. The case study looks at an historical issue; the technical assistance and Mentor/Agency projects address a current public health issue. In each case, MARPHLI projects provide sponsoring agencies with the opportunity to engage teams of public health professionals to solve problems and implement solutions. For further information on project guidelines, follow the links below Case Studies Technical Assistance Projects Mentor/Agency Projects
  13. 13. MARPHLI Case Studies During the October Kick-Off Conference, each Team will be reviewing three public health case studies, each of which explores one of the core functions of public health. During the Kick-Off Conference, you will be introduced to the MARPHLI Guidelines and Protocol for Case Study Development (link to document). From the conclusion of the Kick-Off Conference until the end of February of the following year, each Team is to develop its own case study. The case study should be based on a core function of public health and related essential services and performance standards. Demonstration of leadership practices should be included in a Teacher's Guide for Discussion at the end of the case study. The objective of this assignment is to create, through a fictionalized real life public health problem situation, an opportunity for Fellows to incorporate the concepts introduced to them during the October Kick-Off Conference. This critical thinking and problem solving exercise is utilized by the Leadership Institute as an educational strategy to promote the integration of public health leadership ideas and concepts through practice. At the Six-Month Meeting, a panel discussion will be held at which Team members will summarize and present the case. A discussion will follow on the relevance of leadership as a mechanism for addressing core functions and better affecting the outcome of the problems which public health professionals address. (For case study library, click here) MARHPLI Technical Assistance Projects At the April Six-Month meeting, each Team will finalize the selection of a project to complete during Intersession II of the Fellowship Year. This is an opportunity to choose a critical community or state public health issue that a sponsoring agency or Board has been struggling with in recent time. Through a negotiation process, each Team will select one problem to address. This assignment is designed to facilitate the integration the public health core functions and essential services into practice. Each Fellow is given the opportunity to suggest an issue or problem with which their home agency is involved for consideration of the group project. The Fellow will need the support from their home agency to allow a MARPHLI Team of Fellows to assist the agency in the role of an expert technical assistance team-if their problem is selected. At the Six-Month Meeting, each Team will select one problem as a technical assistance project. The Team will then develop a strategy and work plan for the last six months of the Institute. (For prior technical assistance projects, click here)
  14. 14. MARPHLI Mentor/Agency Projects By mid-January, each Fellow is to designate a Mentor/Agency Advisor from the Fellow's home agency or community. This Mentor/Agency Advisor will be invited by the Institute to serve as a Mentor to the Fellow in a community-based project. The Fellow, in collaboration with the Mentor/Agency Advisor, will select a project that will address a problem that is of current concern to the agency, board or community. The project should incorporate one or more core functions and should highlight or provide an opportunity to utilize one or more of the leadership practices. The project should be designed to assist a local agency to address a current or future public health issue. This can be accomplished by assisting in the implementation of an existing project, designing a future project, or addressing a leadership issue within the public health system. Over a period of six months (January-June), the Fellow will explore the problem in detail and will develop a written plan for addressing the problem. In addition, the Fellow will explore the ways that the core functions and the leadership practices that MARPHLI stresses impact on the solution to the problem selected. The Mentor/Agency Advisor at the agency should be consulted by the Fellow when exploring the issues related to the problem. (for a list of Mentor-Agency projects, click here) PUBLIC HEALTH EXECUTIVE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM The Illinois Public Health Executive Development Program is designed for existing leaders that are preparing to move into senior executive positions. Fellows are paired with an executive coach, who will guide the learning experience throughout the year, and serve as a source of career advice. Fellows attend three face-to-face conferences where they network with other national public health leaders and learn state-of-the-art executive management and leadership skills from national public health experts. To Apply ABOUT PHTPG The mission of the Public Health Training and Practice Group (PHTPG) is to improve population health by strengthening the infrastructure of state and local public health systems. This is accomplished by providing training and development opportunities for individual public health workers, as well as public health agencies and their partners.
