*****************


TPHA AwardThe Tennessee Public Health Association,  Tennessee’s affiliate to the American Public Health Association, has been named APHA’s 2012 Outstanding Affiliate of the Year. This recognition was awarded by APHA’s Council of Affiliates at the APHA Annual Conference on the basis of three exceptional contributions to public health in 2012.


The first involves TPHA’s partnership with the Tennessee Department of Health to identify and implement statewide strategic planning for public health priorities in Tennessee.

Our second major strength was TPHA’s partnership in LIFEPATH, a consortium of universities and public health agencies in Tennessee that constitute a Public Health Training Center, one of only 32 nationwide.

TPHA’s third outstanding contribution to public health was our innovative “Visionary Award,” in which we recognize unsung public health visionaries in each part of the state who impact their community’s health. This demonstrates our partnership and support of community  advocacy for public health.

Dr. Marian Levy submitted the nomination for this award in July during her tenure as President, and  accepted the award on TPHA’s behalf at the APHA annual meeting in October in San Francisco.  This is a tremendous honor that reflects the dedication, commitment, and strength of TPHA members across our state.

(A more complete description of the nomination is available in the November, 2012 newsletter.)
