The James H. Ware Award for Achievement in the Practice of Public Health is given to a student upon graduation who has demonstrated commitment and achievement and has advanced the cause of public health practice while enrolled as a student at HSPH. The awarded practice experience must demonstrate qualities embodied by Dr. James H. Ware: dedication, dignity, vision, and with resulting improvements in a healthier community.
Graduating students from any departments and program, who have engaged in a practice opportunity or experience during their time at HSPH, are encouraged to apply for this award. Practice experience may be completed during the academic year or summer, as part of a degree requirement or not, or may be derived from extracurricular experience outside of the classroom.
