2017 Awards – Call for Nominations

Impressed by a colleague’s dedication to providing quality nursing services for individuals with TB and their families? Amazed by someone’s commitment to advocating for TB services at the local, state or federal levels? Thankful for the contributions made by a TB researcher in clinical or epidemiological arenas? We want to honor and celebrate these individuals and their contributions to our work.

Nominations for the 2017 NTCA Awards are being accepted to honor individuals or organizations for their dedication and distinguished service in the field of TB. Nominations can be submitted by anyone, and nominees do not need to be members of NTCA.

The NTCA Board voted to add a new award in 2017, the “Unsung TB Champion” award. This award is designed to honor those within our TB programs working on the front lines, regardless of their professional training, who daily dedicate themselves to quality patient care and protecting our public’s health. The individuals eligible for nomination for this award conduct contact investigations, educate the community about TB, provide DOT services, build relationships of trust and respect with those they serve, and are the heart and soul of many public health TB programs. These individuals work tirelessly to address TB in their local communities and deserve our recognition and respect.

The deadline for nomination forms has been extended toJanuary 31, 2017.

For more information, please see the 2017 NTCA Award Announcement.
