The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) are still accepting applications for the second annual National Health Security Awards Program. This national honor recognizes local health departments (LHDs) that have demonstrated significant accomplishments in implementing health security-related initiatives within their jurisdictions. All award winners will be provided with free travel, accommodations, and waived registration to the 2017 NACCHO Annual Conference, where they will receive public recognition.
Local health departments are highly encouraged to submit their application today. Before continuing to the application portal, each interested application is encouraged to read the original blog announcement for important information, including the listing of awards categories, and why your local health department should consider applying.
