Riegelman Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Public Health Education Call for Nominations

ASPPH is now accepting nominations for the Riegelman Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Public Health Education. ASPPH is pleased to support this award, made possible by Dr. Richard and Mrs. Linda Riegelman, to encourage and recognize excellence in teaching of public health to undergraduate students. This unique national award will recognize one full-time undergraduate public health faculty at a university with a Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accredited school of public health or a CEPH-accredited program of public health. The award supports faculty who have demonstrated exemplary efforts to start or sustain a new program, have collaborated both with community partners and other disciplines, and have garnered respect and enthusiasm from students. Previous recipients include Dr. Karen (Kay) Perrin of the University of South Florida College of Public Health and Dr. Kelly Gebo of the Johns Hopkins University Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.

The award will be presented at the fourth annual Summit on Undergraduate Education in Public Health in New Orleans, LA on Saturday, November 15. The agenda and registration for the 2014 Summit will be announced in early August, and this year’s theme is “Leading and Developing Successful Undergraduate Public Health Programs”.

The application deadline for the Riegelman award is 11:59 p.m. Pacific on Friday, July 25. Self-nominations are not accepted, however, nominees are welcomed and encouraged to assist nominators with the preparation of materials for the nomination packet.
