Fostering future HIV community leaders — an intensive public health training institute

Public Health Boot Camp is an intensive five-day certificate program provided by the AIDS Foundation of Chicago in partnership with Northwestern University's Institute for Public Health & Medicine, Northwestern Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (NUCATS Institute), and the Feinberg School of Medicine. The intensive training program is designed to enhance professional knowledge of core public health concepts among HIV/AIDS organizational leaders.
