If you are interested in becoming a member of the a KPHA committee please join us.
Each year, awards for meritorious service in the field of public health and the environment are made by KPHA at the Kansas Public Health Conference. These awards serve to create an awareness of the organization in general and outstanding contributors to public health in particular. Any member may submit nominations for any or all of the awards. Unless specifically stated, awardees need not be members of KPHA.
The Awards Committee is charged with management of the awards process and has specific functions as outlined in the organizational bylaws:
- solicit and review nominees for designated KPHA awards;
- recommend individuals to the Board of Directors for the designated awards based on the policies, procedures and in accordance with the bylaws;
- establish and assist with the proceedings for presenting the awards at the annual meeting; and
- recommend the establishment or deletion of an award.
