Building Georgia’s Culture of Health

Understanding that a community’s economic vitality is directly impacted by the overall health of its citizens and access to affordable, quality healthcare, the College of Public Health and the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development with support from Georgia Power, are offering the Public Health Leadership Academy (PHLA) at UGA.  Launched in March 2015, the PHLA’s mission is to increase the capacity of leaders to transcend boundaries, work collaboratively, and transform their communities in order to improve the health of Georgians.



Participants may include business, non-profit, and public leaders; professionals from multiple sectors including health, social work, psychology, ministry, and education; as well as other community-based entities that have an impact on factors that affect public health.


Through five two-day sessions, discussions, support, and peer networking, leaders will increase their capacity to transcend boundaries and work collaboratively to transform the health of their communities.
