Nominations still open: Leaders in Global Health Awards 2012
Have you nominated anyone yet? You have until June 1.
The Awards Committee of the 2012 Centennial Celebration requests nominations for awards to be given at the SPHTM Centennial Celebration on November 10, 2012. Leaders in Global Health Awards provide an opportunity to recognize individuals who espouse the core values of the school and further its goals through their lifelong commitment to public health domestically, internationally, and globally.
Leaders will be nominated by faculty, staff, and alumni of the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. Nominees are expected to be external professionals who are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in global health. Global Health is defined as health issues that transcend borders, boundaries, and socio-economic status. Internal candidates may be considered but they must be alumni of the SPHTM.
There are three categories of award:
- Senior Leader in Global Health – This award recognizes career accomplishments and excellence in profession of public health. The recipient of this award must reflect the SPHTM's tradition of excellence and should exhibit prominence in a business or professional field and in his/her contributions to the wellbeing of national, state, or community life. The recipient's accomplishments and contributions should have been sustained over a long period of time. Optimally, the recipient should have achieved some measure of recognition on the national or international level.
- Junior Leader in Global Health – This award recognizes young professionals whose career trajectories offer promise for careers which are already highly regarded. It honors the significant ongoing contributions or achievements of an alumnus who has not reached the period of extended service deemed necessary for the Senior Leader Award. The Young Alumna's age should not exceed 40 years.
- Community Leader in Global Health – This award recognizes outstanding service to the field of public health in one's own community.
Award winners will reflect the range of academic departments at the school.
