The CDC/University of California Public Health Leadership Institute (PHLI) is a 1-year scholars' program that includes an intensive on-site week, scheduled for March 11-17, 2000. The PHLI is conducted under a cooperative agreement between CDC's Public Health Practice Program Office and the University of California at Los Angeles. The purpose of the PHLI is to strengthen the nation's public health system by enhancing the leadership capacities of senior city, county, state, federal, and international public health officials.

The ninth year of the PHLI will begin on November 6, 1999, with an orientation for scholars at the American Public Health Association Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. Approximately 35 senior public health officials from city, county, state, federal, or international health agencies will be selected to participate in the institute.

Senior state and local health officials, including "deputy" level staff nominated by state health directors or local health directors with a service population of greater than 200,000, are eligible to apply. Applications must be submitted by August 10, 1999. Selections will be made and the scholars notified during the week of September 27, 1999. Additional information and applications are available from the Director, PHLI, telephone (510) 986-0140.
