Growing Health Center Leaders is a dynamic online learning and networking program for new and aspiring leaders in community health centers. The virtual two-day event offers non-c-suite participants the chance to learn and practice leadership skills and understand strategies for career growth in the field.  Learners also have the opportunity to apply their new skills beyond the initial event through a facilitated post-program project to ensure long-term application and retention.

Join NACHC, our partners, current health center leaders, and your peers for a dynamic, participatory learning experience and develop your ability to lead in your organization!  We welcome participants for whom this might be your first professional development activity in a while (or ever)!

Learning Objectives

The learner will be able to:  

  • Communicate effectively to develop relationships, manage conflicts, and work across differences.
  • Cultivate core values that provide an inclusive, safe, and productive work environment.
  • Engage actively in team-based activities, meetings, and projects.
  • Collaborate effectively with their supervisor.
  • Advocate appropriately for one’s own professional growth opportunities within the health center.

View the Growing Health Center Leaders brochure.

Who Should Attend*

Core leadership skills are required for every role and position in a health center. This learning event is intended for:

  • Emerging and aspiring non-c-suite leaders, regardless of role or title
  • High-potential health center staff, new to professional development opportunities
  • *Teams! – Health centers are encouraged to consider a team learning approach by selecting a team to attend and learn together to improve post-event implementation success. (Individual registration is required for each participant.)

Meet the Growing Health Center Leaders Faculty

The Growing Health Center Leaders program faculty recognizes that serving as a leader is more than holding a position or title, it’s the active cultivation of a person’s skills, resiliency, and mindset. As such, each training expert takes the learner on a journey of discovery, on how to lead oneself – and then helps translate that knowledge into practical application at work in health centers.
