Native Public Health Innovation Award: Call for Nominations

Press Release, TEC News

In an effort to honor individuals, Tribes, organizations, and programs that have enriched and improved American Indian and Alaska Native public health, the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) invites nominations for the Native Public Health Innovation Award. NIHB created this award to recognize excellence, achievement, and innovations that are above and beyond the call of service. NIHB recognizes that public health is a traditional Native value, and that Tribes have led the way in creating and implementing public health programming and services that align not only with contemporary needs, but with cultural beliefs as well. This award will highlight the work and vision of a Tribe, individual, organization or program that has worked to improve health status, implement new programming, address long standing health disparities, and/or increase the visibility of public health concerns.


NIHB will present the award at the 9th Annual Tribal Public Health Summit in Prior Lake, Minnesota during a plenary session. All nominations should be received by 11:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday, February 20, 2018. The winner will be notified within three weeks upon close of the nominations.


Deadline: Tuesday, February 20, 2018 by 11:59 pm ET
