The Eastern District North Carolina Public Health Association, Inc. announces the availability of three awards to be presented each year during the Annual Meeting. We ask that you carefully consider potential candidates from your agency. Today, there is far too little opportunity to recognize our many outstanding public health professionals. You can change that with just an hour of your time to nominate an employee or department. Please take time to nominate and forward a nominee for our consideration. We have had on a few occasions only one or two nominations from our association. Yet, there are so many deserving persons. Thank you in advance for taking time to nominate a deserving person or health department.
