It is time for EDNCPHA members to consider nominating a member worthy of recognition during the Annual Educational Conference being held April 29 – May 1, 2020 at the Ramada Plaza Nags Head Oceanfront in Kill Devil Hills. Eastern District has three awards that will be presented this year at the Awards luncheon on Wednesday.

There are many individuals and groups within the Eastern District Public Health Family that deserve to be nominated and there is no greater achievement than to be recognized by your peers for a job well done. We ask that you carefully consider potential candidates from your agency and submit a nomination for our consideration. Today, there are far too few opportunities to recognize our many public health professionals. Please take a minute to change that by taking time to nominate an employee or department.
