The 2012 Call for Nominations and nomination materials are now available for the First Annual Riegelman Award for Undergraduate Public Health Education. This award was made possible by a generous grant from Dr. Richard Riegelman, founding dean of the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services, and his wife, Linda. The Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) is pleased to support this unique award to encourage and recognize excellence in teaching of public health to undergraduate students.
This unique national award will recognize one full-time, undergraduate public health faculty at a university with a Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accredited school of public health or a CEPH-accredited program of public health. The award supports faculty who have demonstrated exemplary efforts to start a new program, have collaborated both with community partners and other disciplines, and have garnered respect and enthusiasm from students.
Dr. Richard Riegelman, MD, MPH, PhD is the editor of the acclaimed Essential Public Health Series, including Public Health 101: Healthy People, Health Populations, Global Health 101 and Epidemiology 101.
