Public Health Emerging and Engaging Leaders (PHEEL) Awards

Through the Public Health Emerging and Engaging Leaders (PHEEL) Awards, the School of Public Health (SPH) Alumni Network recognizes outstanding graduates who have received any degree from SPH within the last 10 years.*

To nominate yourself or another SPH graduate, complete a nomination form that requests a resume/CV and up to two optional letters of recommendation or articles. The nomination form includes three sections: career progression, service and leadership. Nominees will be judged on each of those three criteria by a panel of SPH Alumni Network board members and SPH faculty/staff.

2021 PHEEL Award Nominations are now closed.
