Public Health Award

TAFP created the TAFP Public Health Award in 2004 modeled after the AAFP Public Health Award to honor work in Texas.

Nominees may be physicians working in public health or going beyond their patient community to have an impact on public health, or non-physicians who have an extraordinary impact on the public health of America (city, county, state, or nation). Judging criteria will include but will not be limited to: Body of work (projects/programs), training, experience, letters of support, content of written narratives, and CV. Nominations must come from a TAFP member.
