New APHA award recognizes active public health mentors.
The award, made possible through an endowment by APHA Executive Board member Lyndon Haviland, DrPH, MPH, includes an honorarium of $500, a commemorative plaque, and complementary registration and travel allowance to the Annual Meeting.
Mentors and mentees must be APHA members and must connect through the National Mentoring Database (see story, above). Mentors will be nominated by their mentees, who must submit a 500-word essay on the contributions of their mentor to their work.
Full details about the nomination process are online at www.apha.org/about/awards/08studentmentor.htm.
The deadline for submitting nominations is April 17. For more information, e-mail deborah.dillard@ apha.org or call 202-777-2442.
