The University of South Florida College of Public Health initiated the Outstanding Woman in Public Health Award in April 1988 to recognize unsung heroes engaged in impactful public health work in the State of Florida. The Outstanding Woman in Public Health award is presented to a woman leader in public health in Florida as a way to recognize the many roles women play in this profession and their significant contributions to the field of public health. Nominees should be someone whose work significantly contributes to the field of public health in Florida. Candidates may represent any sector of public health, including maternal/child health; health policy, management, finance or economics; epidemiology and biostatistics; environmental and occupational health; public health nutrition; public health nursing; international health; health education; or toxicology/parasitology. The award is typically presented on Wednesday of National Public Health Week at the College of Public Health’s Annual Awards Ceremony.
