COLUMBIA — Stephanie Browning is going to leadership school.
The director of the Columbia-Boone County Department of Health and Human Services has been accepted into the National Public Health Leadership Institute. The one-year program is geared toward "high potential leaders with a commitment to leading in their own organizations and communities but also leading system change on the national scene," according to a news release from the city.
The program, which began March 10, includes weekly conference calls, webinars, readings and assignments, as well as on-site training and leadership assessments at the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health.
The institute is sponsored by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
