In a recent awards ceremony in Baltimore, Maryland, the Arkansas Department of Health picked up thirteen awards related to its various public awareness campaigns last year.
Dr. Paul Halverson, ADH Director, said, "We are honored to be recognized nationally for public health communication efforts. Health communication is one of the Department's most important functions at the state and local level. Through communication efforts, ADH alerts Arkansans to disease outbreaks, water safety notices and the importance of childhood immunizations, among other things. I am very proud of our colleagues and their excellent work."
The National Public Health Information Coalition is an independent organization of professionals organized to share best practices and improve America's health through public health communications.
