Delta Omega created this annual award more than 10 years ago in order to applaud the important role public health graduate education plays in the development and maintenance of a strong, active, and well-prepared public health profession. Faculty from schools and programs with active chapters may apply for this award, as long as the respective chapter approves of their submission.
This unique award seeks submissions that are creative and bridge the gap between public health academia and practice. Award winners stimulate the evolution of innovative graduate public health courses that are responsive to the educational needs of the public health work force.
