James H. Ware Award

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 the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. 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 the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, 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.
