The AIDPH Corporate Leadership Council
AIDPH’s Corporate Leadership Council (CLC) members are leading business, organization, association leaders, and executives within the public dental health space who generously donate their time, secure financial support, and who have the business acumen to advise AIDPH on resource development.
The AIDPH Dental Public Health Leadership Academy (DPHLA) is a 12-month program that will build the knowledge, skills, and capacity of early-career dental public health professionals and students to be leaders in their field. The DPHLA will incorporate didactic and case-based content, hands-on exercises, and collaborative, peer-to-peer learning. A national advisory group and expert faculty will provide teachings and related resources.
Monthly, two-hour calls for the full cohort. Each call will focus on a single leadership development or public health/policy, building on learnings of previous calls as the program goes on. DPHLA faculty will finalize call topics based on the specific needs and interests of the participants, as identified in the program application.
Each monthly call will feature subject-matter expert faculty and will incorporate a mix of didactic, experiential, and peer-to-peer learning.
