Call for Nominations Reminder: 2019 USPHS IPEC Award

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.
