Public health work is essential to healthy, thriving communities. Clark County Public Health and its community partners promote health for all residents, whether we’re ensuring the safety of food and water, investigating and preventing diseases, preparing for emergencies, or preventing childhood trauma.
But public health services can't be taken for granted. In an era of emerging health threats and unreliable funding, public health practitioners and their community partners face tough challenges meeting our communities’ needs.
That’s why it’s important to recognize the value of their work. The Public Health Community Award honors an individual and/or organization for contributions to the community's health.
The nomination period for the 2020 Public Health Community Award has closed.
A committee of Public Health Advisory Council members and Public Health staff will review nominations and select winners. The committee will give special consideration to individuals or organizations in Clark County that work to prevent health problems, forge partnerships, and strive for communitywide outcomes.
This year's award presentation has been postponed due to the COVID-19 response.
