Presentation of Awards at 11:30am
The responsibility of public health is to protect and promote the health of communities through education, policy, and assessment. To be successful, public health departments need the support and action of private organizations and individuals. When we work together, we can build healthier communities and eventually achieve our goal of being the healthiest nation.
The purpose of the Hometown Health Hero award is to recognize individuals and organizations which have made significant contributions to protect and improve their community’s health. Hometown Health Hero awards are presented every April as part of Michigan’s Public Health Week. Help us celebrate all the great achievements happening in public health by nominating an organization or an individual you know for a Hometown Health Hero award. The Michigan Public Health Week celebration takes place at the State Capitol on April 15, 2020. For more information, click here.
