Katherine Gilson, health educator with the Three Rivers District Health Department, is among 25 recent graduates of the Kentucky Public Health Leadership Institute, a year-long development program for practitioners in the field of public health.
Gilson was awarded a certificate in public health leadership from the University of Kentucky College of Public Health in April.
Funded by the Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH), KPHLI is one of 35 leadership institutes located throughout the United States.
Graduation from the Institute requires completion of a change master team project that addresses a public health issue or problem, a comprehensive individual development plan, and book reviews of two leadership books in addition to the reading required during the year.
Gilson collaborated with four other KPHLI participants on a change master team project called “Public Health 101,” a training opportunity for new local health department employees to help educate them on public health services available to citizens and to understand their interconnectedness.
