Awards season

Last night, Annual Meeting attendees gathered to cheer on some of the best and brightest in public health at the APHA Public Health Awards Reception & Ceremony. Also during the reception, APHA presented a check for more than $13,000 to Groundwork Lawrence, a local organization working to create healthier communities. The donation was made possible by APHA members who participated in this year's Help Us Help Them campaign. Above are photos of just a few of the night's recipients.

Is there a list of this year's award recipients listed anywhere on the APHA site?

Bummer that your recognition of people's work is only an inside job. I thought public health would be PUBLIC, but I have to pay to see the award winners. It seems you assume this will not be impirtant or relevant to anyone outside of the public health field.
