Annual Meeting and Conference

Call for Nominations: Sellers-McCroan Award and GPHA Section Awards

Preparations are underway for the 89th Georgia Public Health Association Annual Meeting and Conference scheduled to take place on April 4-6, 2017 in Jekyll Island. One of the highlights of the gathering is the announcement of public health employees and advocates who have been chosen as GPHA award recipients.

The GPHA Awards Committee, made up of representatives from public health districts and organizations around the state, is now soliciting nominations for all awards, including the distinguished Sellers-McCroan Award, which is presented at a separate event during the conference.

Nomination forms for all the awards can be downloaded using the link below. Please take the time to read through the criteria and consider taking this wonderful opportunity to broadly recognize staff, partners, and advocates for excellence in public health. The Sellers-McCroan Award particularly recognizes an individual or group whose work has had significant impact on epidemiology and/or laboratory services at the state, district or county levels; in academia; or in hospitals.
