Faculty Awards for Public Health Practice
Nominations for Faculty Awards for Public Health Practice will open in February 2017.
Application deadline is Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 11:59 p.m.
The Office of Public Health Practice and Training recognizes faculty members each year for outstanding public health practice contributions. These awards are given in recognition of a practice effort that has made or has great potential to make a sustained impact on a health-related outcome. Winners will receive a plaque and will be invited to share their work during a seminar sponsored by the Office of Public Health Practice and Training.
Nominations will be accepted for the following awards:
Excellence in International Public Health Practice
Excellence in U.S. Public Health Practice (excludes Baltimore-based activities)
Excellence in Baltimore Public Health Practice (awarded jointly by the Office of Public Health Practice and Training and SOURCE)
Full-time faculty of any rank with a primary appointment at JHSPH. After winning an award, individuals become ineligible for five years.
The practice effort should have been active in the previous 12 months, although efforts that began earlier and on-going efforts are eligible. Such eligible efforts include, but are not limited to: contributing to the creation, implementation, or evaluation of programs, policies, or practices that improve the public’s health; assisting community-based organizations or agencies in ways that advance their mission and improve the public’s health; or other real-world application of public health principles and methods that improves health.
While the practice effort that is the subject of the nomination may be tied to a research project, the practice effort itself needs to be distinct from any research.
Nominations for Faculty Awards for Public Health Practice may be made by any JHSPH faculty member, and self-nominations are accepted. To be considered, faculty should submit the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
1. Statement of no more than 500 words that describes the following:
- Which award the faculty member is being nominated for (i.e., Excellence in International Public Health Practice; Excellence in U.S. Public Health Practice; Excellence in Baltimore Public Health Practice)
- Title of the Practice Project
- Description of the Practice Project
- Impact that the practice project has made or has great potential to make on a health-related outcome (e.g., implications for policy, practice, future programming, etc. that can improve health)
2. A letter of support from a practice partner involved in the work who is external to JHSPH.
