NOLA LEADs - Leadership Education & Action on health Disparities

July 30th, 2016

6 Sessions


Starting in Spring 2016, NOLA LEADs (Leadership Education & Action on health Disparities) will recruit 50 individuals from across New Orleans to participate in a new leadership training institute. This opportunity is free and open to New Orleans residents who are concerned about improving the lives of their neighbors and the conditions of their communities. It is specifically for people who have not worked in public health previously.

The institute includes a series of six trainings held over three months. The training will focus on helping people develop the skills and knowledge needed to advocate for changes in structural conditions " such as zoning laws, school policies, and transportation systems " that contribute to health disparities. Participants will create advocacy plans to put the lessons into action. Questions? Click here to view the NOLA LEADs Participant Flyer or contact Julia at or 504-323-4614.
