With 98% of EIS officers remaining in public health positions after the fellowship, the EIS program is uniquely positioned to influence the diversity of the public health workforce and its leadership. The LLS’s training competencies provide LLS fellows with perspectives and experiences in laboratory leadership as it relates to diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and health equity in applied public health practice.
