Katherine L. Cauley, Ph.D., Director

Health Promotion Program Award

Since 1997, the Center for Healthy Communities has invited the community to submit nominations for its Annual Health Promotion Program Award.

The award recognizes community-based health promotion programs that serve the citizens of the greater Dayton area. To be eligible for the award, programs must have been developed and implemented by two or more organizations and involve the collaboration of two or more groups/organizations. The Center recognizes programs in two categories: new programs and established programs.
