    I’m not sure I would have had the confidence and courage to run for public office had I not had the experience. Not only did Leadership Lafayette open my eyes to the community as a whole, but the program made me aware of the issues and challenges facing our community.

    Pediatrician, IU Health


    Although I had been in the community for five years, I was not fully aware of the many resources available. In addition to information, the Leadership Lafayette experience was a reflective one — teaching me more about myself and enhancing my teaching skills. I feel better able to serve my patients, my employer, and my community.
