The third U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) Award will showcase interprofessional efforts to positively impact community health. The annual USPHS IPEC Award recognizes a team of health-professional school based collaborators working on IPE projects that establish a relationship between interprofessional practice and outcomes (community practice, public health education, and/or research). One overall National Awardee will be selected and receive their award at the Summer 2019 IPEC Council Meeting in Washington, DC. The winning interprofessional team will receive a $2,000 travel stipend and will work with IPEC and USPHS on a webinar or continuing education publication highlighting their work.
The submission deadline is 5:00 p.m. Eastern on Friday, February 1, 2019. All award applicants will receive notification emails by Friday, March 15.
