Call for nom



As many of you know, every fall in a non-gala year, Health & Medicine hosts a special HMPRG Awards event to honor members of the public health and policy communities – from veteran practitioners to young justice-driven activists – for their vision, leadership and work that serves as a living embodiment of, or testament to,  public health and social justice.
General Eligibility Criteria:
- Current members of HMPRG Board, Committees, or staff ineligible
- Posthumous awards not considered
- Must live or work in Illinois or Northeast Indiana (Metro Chicago area)
- Self nominations are accepted

  • HEALTH (Individual Award) Individuals who work within the health arena, using the broadest definition of health, with an emphasis on public health and improvements in the health of populations.
  • MEDICINE (Individual Award) Individuals whose work in any aspect of health care delivery (e.g. medicine, dentistry, mental health, nutrition, home care, pharmacy, insurance, medical groups) fosters system or institutional improvements.
  • POLICY (Individual Award) Individuals working in advocacy, government, media, or philanthropy, whose work encompasses the many facets of policy analysis, development, planning, and implementation.
  • RESEARCH (Individual Award) Applies to individuals involved in any aspect of quantitative or qualitative research, community-based research, or evaluative research that serves to promote improvements in the quality of life (recognizing the multiple determinants of health).
  • GROUP (“The Quentin Award”) (Organization Award) Recognizes that the sum of the whole is often greater than the individual parts, and honors a group, organization, or coalition that supports or enhances community self-determination and independence, focuses its work on any of the determinants of health, and has had an impact beyond the scope of its programs. In the spirit of Quentin Young’s support of creating long-lasting improvements through coalition-building and collective action, this award will be affectionately referred to as “the Quentin” award.
  • EMERGING HEALTH LEADER (Individual Award) Inaugurated in 2007, this award honors a leader under 30 currently involved in community-based work with broadly defined public health implications.
