  • "We must care enough. We must know enough. We must be willing to do enough. We must persist in our efforts."
    ~David Satcher, M.D., Ph.D, Director of the Satcher Health Leadership Institute



    The Division of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention is designed to close the gap between academic health centers and the communities of greatest need by engaging with the people most affected by health disparities. The Division’s goal is to develop community health leaders who are educated, motivated, and mobilized to lead community groups in changing health behaviors,
    improving environmental health, and influencing policies to support community health.

    Community Health Leadership Program

    The Community Health Leadership Program (CHLP) is a 12 session program, scheduled one day weekly over 12 weeks. Focused on developing community health leaders, the program also includes students from the Morehouse School of Medicine’s Masters in Public Health (MPH) Program. The curriculum is interactive and community-based. An important part of the CHLP curriculum is its community-based research and practicum component. The community participants and MPH students partner in developing community projects that must be relevant to community needs, show evidence of sustainability, and impact health disparities.
