Public Health Leadership Lab

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
-Mary Oliver


Public health leaders understand systemic problems, set new directions, lead change, and learn quickly from mistakes. Public health leaders connect with and inspire others to join them in addressing the most intractable population health challenges.

In the 2020 – 2021 academic year, The Public Health Leadership (PHL) Lab will be delivered completely remotely.  Our program continues to focus on creating opportunities to help students develop a greater understanding of themselves as leaders and learners.  Through workshops, applied-learning, coaching, and reflection, students learn how to work in teams, how to improve their self-awareness, and how they view and engage with others.

All Harvard Chan School students are welcome to participate in PHL Lab regardless of their degree program.  Specifically for this academic year, students who are interested in leadership content but do not have the time to fully commit as a Participant or Concentrator have the option to view our leadership instructional videos and participate in live integration sessions.  Please visit the Workshops page for more information.

As the PHL Lab does not offer a degree, prospective students must apply to a degree program offered by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Students must prioritize the requirements of their degree program first, and then incorporate the requirements of the PHL Lab into their academic schedule.

We invite you to join us in this work.
