Nursing Section issues call for award nomination submissions.

The Public Health Nursing Section is accepting nominations for awards to be presented at APHA's 135th Annual Meeting in November.

The deadline for submitting nomination forms and supporting material is May 1. Nominees must be APHA members and primary members of the Public Health Nursing Section.

The Ruth B. Freeman Award honors a person who has had a distinguished career in public health service or education, characterized by a continuing record of noteworthy accomplishments in the field of public health nursing.

The Public Health Nurse Creative Achievement Award is given in recognition of an individual's creative contribution to public health nursing in practice, research, education or administration. The contribution will have enhanced the quality of care delivered to individuals, families or a community or the professional status of public health nursing. The nominee's achievement, with a discussion of the outcome, should have been publicly and professionally disseminated.

The Lillian Wald Service Award is presented to individuals, groups or agencies that depict exemplary public health nursing practice to the public, especially through political, legislative, professional or interdisciplinary activism.

For more information or to request nomination materials, contact the Section's Awards Committee Chair Susan Zahner, DrPH, RN, at (608) 263-5282 or <>.
