Florida Outstanding Woman in Public Health Award
The deadline for nomination materials is Friday, February 20.
The University of South Florida College of Public Health recognizes the contributions that women make to the field and honors them annually with the Florida Outstanding Woman in Public Health Award. 

Over the past 25 years, the college honored women who served as an agent of collaboration, force of social responsibility, and source of hope. Women like Dr. Flora Mae Wellings, the first recipient of the Florida Outstanding Woman in Public Health Award.  For 18 years, Dr. Wellings directed the State Epidemiology Research Center and was instrumental in finding solutions to many of Florida’s environmental public health problems.

Award nominees should be women whose work significantly contributed to the field of public health in Florida.  Candidates may represent any sector of public health, including maternal/child health; health policy, management, finance or economics; epidemiology and biostatistics; environmental and occupational health; public health nutrition; public health nursing; international health; health education; and, toxicology/parasitology.

 

The Florida Outstanding Woman in Public Health Award is presented annually in conjunction with National Public Health Week. This year’s ceremony is on Wednesday, April 8 and is open to members of the community.  Visit the award website for additional nomination information and list of honorees.
