For the past three years, the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice has featured students rocking public health on its companion website, JPHMP Direct in a popular ongoing series of the same name with a year-end review of a final group of students whose projects tackled some of the most pressing public health challenges of the year. Nominations are currently being accepted from deans, faculty, advisors, mentors, and classmates with information about students who have made great contributions to advance population health in 2019.
All nominees must be currently enrolled students pursuing an undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral degree in public health or a related field. Projects may be ongoing but should have gotten underway in 2019, not before. Projects may involve groups of other students. Ideally, projects will have tackled some of the most pressing public health issues in 2019, but projects that addressed ongoing public health concerns are equally important and welcome. Nominations must be received by Dec. 1, 2019. Faculty, advisors, mentors, and classmates are all eligible to nominate up to 3 students. Selections will be based on the following: timeliness and urgency of the public health issue addressed, level of success achieved, overall impact of the project, and level of inclusiveness and diversity.
Simply email JPHMP Direct at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of 1-3 students, a brief description of the students’ project(s) and how it/they helped to advance population health in 2019, along with each student’s email address.Friday Letter Submission, Publish on November 08
