Community Health Award Opportunity

The call for applications for the Public Health Excellence in Interprofessional Education Collaborative Award is now open. The 2020 award, a joint effort between the United States Public Health Service Department (USPHS) and the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC), will showcase interprofessional efforts that positively impact community health.

The awardee will be recognized at the Summer 2020 IPEC Meeting in Washington, DC, and the winning team will receive a $2,000 stipend to offset travel costs. Additionally, a webinar series or continuing education publication will be developed from the selected project/topic areas. The honorable mention winners will also be invited to the Summer 2020 IPEC Meeting to receive their certificates and to present posters on their projects.

All awardees will be featured on the IPEC website, promoted across partner sites, highlighted through social media campaigns, and acknowledged throughout member communications.
