Michigan Public Health Week 2024 - Nominations Open for the Annual Hometown Health Hero Award! Due Jan 31, 2024

The Michigan Public Health Week Partnership (Partnership)* invites you to nominate someone for the Hometown Health Hero award. The Hometown Health Hero award is presented every year to individuals and/or organizations that have made significant and measurable contributions to preserve and/or improve the health of their community. Awardees are selected solely from nominations received. The only way for someone to receive this award is to be nominated. These awards will be presented on April 10, 2024, as part of Public Health Week in Michigan.

The 2024 award event marks the 20th anniversary of these awards and the Michigan Public Health Week Partnership that sponsors them. Over the last twenty years community leaders, organizations, and individuals have been doing great things to improve the health of their communities and to increase equity in health. The Partnership wants to continue to recognize those accomplishments, but we need your help. What health improvements are happening in your community that we can potentially recognize with this award? To help you answer that question, look at those who have received this award in the past. Submit a completed nomination form to the Partnership by email or fax (517-335-8392) no later than 5:00 pm, January 31. Awardees are selected solely from nominations received by the deadline.

Awards will be presented on Wednesday, April 10 at 11:30 a.m. in the Atrium of Heritage Hall in the State Capitol Building. The event is open to the public.
