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. The awards will be given at the awards luncheon at the Annual Educational Conference being held April 24-26, 2024, at the DoubleTree Atlantic Beach, NC

Award nominations can now be submitted electronically using this link:

The deadline for receiving nominations is March 1, 2024. Contact Trey Wright, EDNCPHA Awards Committee Chair [email protected] with any questions or concerns.
