In 2006, the Public Health Leaders of Tomorrow (PHLOT) Program was established to revive the field of public health through initiatives aimed at both current public health professionals and students at the University at Albany's School of Public Health. With support from Senator Kemp Hannon, Chairman of the NYS Senate Standing Committee on Health and the New York State Department of Health, PHLOT provides opportunities designed to strengthen the current public health infrastructure and train the next generation of public health leaders in New York State. PHLOT offers tuition assistance for State and Local Health Department (LHD) employees to take academic coursework at the University at Albany School of Public Health and promotes leadership development activities for students preparing for public health careers in NYS government.
Continued support of the PHLOT program from the Governor's Executive Budget, the New York State Senate, the New York State Department of Health and the University at Albany helps ensure that the public health needs of NYS residents are addressed and protected by a highly trained and competent public health workforce.
