PH Program Award nomination 2014
Help MPHA recognize the effective, efficient, evidence-based and creative public health programs that you know of in your community, district or throughout Maine. The goal of the Program of Excellence Award is to increase the visibility of public health initiatives in Maine, to promote adoption of effective public health programs, and to provide recognition to organizations involved in successful collaborative public health initiatives.

Ruth Shaper award form 2014
The Ruth S. Shaper Memorial Award recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution in the area of public health.  The individual will have demonstrated a broad orientation to health promotion and disease prevention that extends beyond his/her specific profession or field of interest.  For example, the individual may have made a meaningful impact in health legislation, health education, health policy development, or consumer advocacy at either the community or state level.  Professional rank or status in an organization is not an important factor.  The nominee need not be a member of the Maine Public Health Association.
