Trade and Health Forum wins APHA’s 2012 Award of Excellence for Continuing Education!

Congratulations to the APHA Trade and Health forum, which won the 2012 Award of Excellence for Continuing Education from APHA! The IH section is well-represented in the forum, and section member Mary Anne Mercer plays an active part of the forum’s leadership. The award letter is below.


Dear Forum Leader,

Congratulation!!! Your Forum was selected to receive the APHA Education Board Award for Excellence for your exceptional commitment to providing continuing education opportunities at the APHA 140th Annual Meeting and Exposition that was held in San Francisco, CA October 27 – 31, 2012.

This award is given each year to SECTIONS, SPIGs, CAUCUSES and FORUMS whose entire offerings of scientific sessions are awarded continuing education credit without revisions.

Those who need continuing education credit to maintain their certifications (CPH, CHES, MCHES) or license (CME, CNE) appreciate the hard work you do to provide over 800 scientific sessions for them to choose from.

I have attached the 2012 Award Emblem for Continuing Education. Please feel free to post this on your website and use it in your newsletters. The certificate will be mailed to the membership address on file for the 2013 Section Chair.

In the coming weeks, I will contact you to determine if you would like to recommend 5 of the 2012 Scientific Sessions for APHA’s new Online CE Program. More detailed information will be forthcoming.

The Education Board thanks you and your colleagues for your continued hard work.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Holidays!!

Annette Ferebee, MPH
