Every April, Michigan celebrates National Public Health Week. Each year there is a different focus area that highlights Michigan efforts. This year’s focus is “Healthier Michigan Begins Today.”
If you know a person or group who deserves recognition as a Hometown Health Hero for going above and beyond (in any of the categories listed on the application) to prevent diseases in their community and to promote healthy behaviors, please nominate them for a Hometown Health Hero award. Link to the Hometown Health Hero Award Nomination Form. Completed applications are due March 8, 2012. The awards will be presented at the Capitol on April 25, 2012.
