The purpose of the West Virginia Public Health Hall of Fame is to recognize individuals who have helped make this state and this nation great through outstanding contributions to the establishment, development, advancement or improvement of Public Health.
The West Virginia Public Health Hall of Fame should not be viewed as a replacement for the recognition provided by the Public Health Merit Award, the Organization or Group Award, or the Citizens Award. However, induction into the Hall of Fame should be viewed as the ultimate in recognition. The quality of each nominee presented to the review board should reflect dignity and prestige to the membership. It is most important that the honor maintain high standards and does not become a vehicle of favoritism. The nominee must have demonstrated high standards in accomplishment and merit.
Letters from individuals or organizations which add significant information to the nominee's accomplishment are encouraged. However, general letters in support of the nomination are discouraged.
If the nominee is selected for recognition, a digital photograph will be needed. Please do not send photo with the nomination.
Nominations may be made by any individual or organization in West Virginia by completing a nomination form and submitting it by June 18th to:
West Virginia Public Health Association
P.O. Box 11635
Charleston, WV 25339-1635
All information will be kept strictly confidential prior to the Thursday evening awards banquet.
