Horizon Health Education Program Award

The Tuberculosis Education and Training Network (TB ETN) has been awarded the Horizon Health Education Program Award by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Public Health Education and Promotion Network (PHEP-Net). As part of the 2004 Excellence in Health Education Awards, the Horizon Award is given to a program developed by CDC or in collaboration with CDC partners, which has been in existence for 2-4 years, and exhibits significant potential to substantially and positively affect the practice of health education. The award was presented to TB ETN at Health Education Day on Friday, October 22, 2004.

PHEP-Net is an employee organization for health educators of CDC and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). Each year PHEP-Net sponsors the Excellence in Health Education Awards to honor outstanding health education programs developed by CDC or in collaboration with CDC partners. The awards are presented at the annual CDC Health Education Day.

TB ETN was nominated for the award because of its significant growth and impact since its inception in 2001. There are over 700 members in the network representing 50 states within the U.S. and a growing international representation. The network provides opportunities to improve skills, abilities, and knowledge of available resources of TB educators and promotes collaborative efforts between TB programs and other organizations conducting TB education and training.

TB ETN has increased the visibility, momentum, and impact of TB education and training efforts and raised awareness about the importance of education and training as an essential part of a TB program. CDC TB ETN representatives were honored to accept the award on behalf of TB ETN and would like to thank both the past and current Steering Committee members, the subcommittee co-chairs and members, and TB ETN members for their efforts in making TB ETN an exceptional health education program!
