2022 Touro Public Health Program Hero Awards
In conjunction with National Public Health Week, the Public Health Hero Awards were
established in 2007 to honor students, alumni, faculty, and community members who
demonstrate outstanding leadership on public health issues, community service and
public health research. We recognize these individuals for activities which support
the TUC Public Health Program’s vision for reducing health inequities and improving
the health conditions of underserved communities.
In keeping with the American Public Health Association’s theme for 2022 National Public Health Week “Public Health is Where You Are”, please join the Public Health Program in honoring those who are helping to make
our communities healthy places to live.
