Developing leaders for the public's health is a priority both nationally and internationally. Directors from two regional leadership development programs in the U.S. (the Regional Institute for Health and Environmental Leadership, Denver, CO; the Great Basin Public Health Leadership Institute, Salt Lake City, UT) were invited to create and deliver a leadership development seminar for the School of Public Health, PGIMER, in Chandigarh, India. This was done in collaboration with faculty and staff from the University of Utah, Department of Family & Preventive Medicine, Public Health Division. This presentation will discuss potential differences or similarities for providing core leadership competency training to a U.S. audience vs. a similar audience in India.

Learning Areas:
