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.

The 2014 Innovative Curriculum Award went to Dr. Cynthia Gonzalez of Charles Drew University for her course entitled, “MPH Program in Urban Health, MPH 524: Community Organization in Urban Settings.” A powerpoint of the presentation can be found here. Dr. Gonzalez was presented with her award at the 2014 Delta Omega Annual Meeting of the Executive Council on November 17, 2014 in New Orleans, LA.
