Metanoia is on the leading edge of public health workforce development. Founder, visionary and lead consultant, Kory Moore Luther, CPQC, ACC, MPH reflected about the Leading Edge Strategic Planning Series a program of the Colorado Small Business Development Center Network, Kory stated, “(the program) supercharged the business.”

Kory took her weekly consulting team calls with national experts in public health from Michigan to the United States Virgin Islands in the parking lot of Front Range Community College in Fort Collins before the program began every Tuesday through the summer months. For Metanoia, it wasn’t the curriculum, instruction, or location that supercharged the business, it was relationships across businesses participating in the program. During the last class, Kory was “so impressed by the diversity of small businesses and founders who were dedicating so much effort to their passion and purpose.”

Metanoia (meh-ta-noy-ah) means the journey of transforming one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life and is a call to action for the public health industry across the globe. This small business began in 2019 as a small consulting company focused on building capacity across the national network of public health agencies to implement high impact, culture change learning and development strategies. Specifically, the learning model founded at the University of New Mexico, Project ECHO. From 2014 – 2019, Kory led the Project ECHO Colorado initiative based at the Colorado School of Public Health on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado when she was requested to consult on integrating the Project ECHO model into a Hurricane Response Hub. This hub was designed to support connection, communication, and sharing public health best practices across Puerto Rico, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas, all communities reeling from the 2017 hurricane disasters.

Officially established in January 2020, Metanoia’s client base expanded quickly to community health networks, public health institutes, public health training centers, schools of public health, state and local public health departments, not-for-profit community-based organizations, and large health systems. The goal: change burnout culture. The approach*: Project ECHO, Coaching, and Action Learning.

Metanoia was involved in the “National Initiative to Address COVID-19 Health Disparities Among Populations at High-Risk and Underserved, Including Racial and Ethnic Minority Populations and Rural Communities” and represented lessons learned regarding Project ECHO in public health at the global metaECHO conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico just after the Leading Edge wrapped up in 2023.

Kory highlights, “the connections with B.A. Rebel and Explore Younique from Leading Edge gave not only myself, but coaches and consultants from across the country who have been fighting injustices in public health for decades the extra special care and attention we all needed. Just in time to supercharge our workforce while we build infrastructure!”
