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). Nominations must come from a TAFP member.

Nomination requirements

  • Submit a completed nomination form,
  • Submit a typed copy of a current curriculum vitae,
  • Submit a written narrative describing the nominee’s public health activity and impact, and
  • Submit a letter of recommendation from the nominator.

The Commission on Public Health will judge submissions.

2018 awards will be presented at the TAFP Annual Session and Primary Care Summit in Arlington on Nov. 10, 2018.

Questions should be addressed to Perdita Henry by email at phenry@tafp.org or by phone at (512) 329-8666, ext 136.
