Events and Competitions - Innovative Curriculum Awards

InnovativeAwards.jpgDelta 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.

InnovativeAwards.jpgThis 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.

The 2013 Innovative Curriculum Award went to Dr. Julie Preskitt of the University of Alabama at Birmingham for her course entitled, “MCH Fundamentals II: Application of Essential MCH Skills.” A PDF the presentation can be found here.  Dr. Preskitt was resented with her award at the 2013 Delta Omega Annual Meeting of the Executive Council on November 4, 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Also recognized was the runner-up for this award, Dr. Rebecca Wurtz of the Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine.
