leadership group 2015

The Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) invites you to attend its 30th Leadership in Strategic Communication Workshop (LSCW). Over three-weeks, this transformative course will guide you through the steps involved in conceptualizing and implementing behavior change communication initiatives that work.

You will learn how to:

  • Write a strategic communication plan
  • Design and implement evidence-based, culturally-relevant messages
  • Use digital media to reach your audience
  • Communicate during a crisis
  • Measure and evaluate program results

LSCW is taught by CCP staff and experts from other leading communication organizations. We create a unique learning atmosphere that is lively, collaborative and creative. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to design and lead innovative communication solutions to global public health challenges. You will return to your job with a toolkit full of new ideas and a new way to think about solving problems. Plus, you will become part of the community of over 5,000 alumni from 100 different countries.


Tuition is $6,950. Travel, visa, hotel, and incidentals are not included in the tuition price. All participants are required to stay at the selected hotel and pay for the meal package. More hotel information coming soon.

Obtaining Health Insurance and U.S Visa:

Participants who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. Permanent Residents must be admitted to the U.S. in the appropriate visa status. The Office of International Services (OIS) will determine the appropriate visa status for LSC workshop participants. If it is determined that visa sponsorship from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) is necessary, CCP will initiate an application for J-1 Exchange Visitor sponsoring in coordination with the OIS.

It can take several months to secure the appropriate visa stamp, so please plan accordingly. Specifically, individuals who will require J-1 visas must submit all required documents to JHSPH 90 days in advance of the institute or workshop in which they will participate. Participants who do not heed this advice risk being denied entry to the U.S. If you have any questions about visa sponsorship, please contact OIS.

During the time the Exchange Visitors are in the U.S. they are required by U.S. federal regulations to have health insurance coverage for themselves and for all accompanying dependents. While OIS cannot endorse any specific plan, a selected list of providers of health insurance policies for international scholars can be found online.

Sponsors and/or applicants should budget approximately $300 USD to cover the cost of a J-1 visa and U.S. health insurance.
