Nominations are now open for the inaugural National Preventive Health Awards.
Managed by the Australian National Preventive Health Agency (ANPHA) the Awards reflect the Agency’s commitment to improving health outcomes for all Australians in partnership with the national, State and Territory governments and departments and agencies are welcome to nominate.
They showcase current, practical and effective workplace programs that benefit the well-being of employees and encourage leadership in the area of preventive health to promote greater awareness of current health challenges.
Recognition for good workplaces
Chief Executive of ANPHA, Louise Sylvan said the Awards would recognise excellence and best practice in the field of prevention and health promotion across four key sectors: workplaces, research, Medicare Locals and the media.
“We know there are many people and organisations who contribute so much time and energy supporting prevention and better health and well-being around Australia,” said Ms Sylvan.
“These Awards allow us to recognise the invaluable effort of those promoting healthy lifestyles to enhance the quality of life for many Australians.”
She said four main categories were: the Healthy Workplace Awards; the Prevention in Medicare Locals Awards; the Preventive Health Translational Research Award; and the Excellence in Preventive Health Journalism Award.
