A healthy community requires contributions from many individuals and organizations. Do you know a person or an organization that is making a positive difference in our community where they live, learn, work and play? Their passion is rooted in helping their community live a healthier life, regardless of age, income or socio-economic background.
Algoma Public Health is calling on residents to nominate local citizens and organizations for the 2018 Public Health Champion Award. Help us recognize the extraordinary achievements of fellow champions for public health in the Algoma district.
“As we celebrate 50 years as a public health organization, we want to recognize that citizens and organizations help make a healthier and stronger community” said Dr. Marlene Spruyt, Algoma’s Medical Officer of Health. “The first annual Public Health Champion award lets us shine a light on those making a positive difference in the community.”
A public health champion is anyone who helps to protect and promote the health of our communities, whether through leading, collaborating, innovating, or fostering opportunities for health.
The call for nomination runs from August 1, 2018 – September 28, 2018. Nomination forms are available online here: http://www.algomapublichealth.com/news/public-health-champion-award/
