The Make a Difference! Leadership Academy, an initiative of the Healthy Start Coalition, is seeking nominations and applications for the next class of grassroots leaders that begins July 28.
The goal of the Leadership Academy is to support the efforts of local residents to make changes in neighborhood factors that contribute to disparities in health and birth outcomes. The Academy trains individuals and assists them in the development of a Community Action Plan that outlines a specific project to move a community to action. The free 16-week training will take place at the Magnolia Project Office 5300 N. Pearl Street 32208.
