Below is an e-ail that we received notifying us that AzPHA will be receiving APHA’s Vision Award for Excellence in Health Policy Award this year:

Congratulations! On behalf of the APHA Community Health Planning and Policy Development (CHPPD) section of the American Public Health Association, we are honored to present you with the Vision Award for Excellence in Health Policy.

We were inspired to read about your work promoting public health policy and equity in Arizona through advocacy, research, teaching, and health communication. 

We plan to present the award at the CHPPD awards assembly at the APHA Annual Meeting, which will be virtual this year. The event will be on October 25 from 6-8 pm Mountain Time. If you are unable to attend, you are also welcome to submit a short video (5 minutes or less) describing a few key lessons you’ve learned through your experience or advice you would give to other public health professionals. Please let us know which option would be more convenient for you.

We will mail the physical award to your address. Please let us know what address you would like us to mail the award to and how you would like your name and credentials to appear on the award. We will make every effort to present the information as you would like. Could you please also send a photo that we could use to share in our social media?   

Congratulations again, and please let us know if you have any questions.
