TB Education and Training Network Updates

TB ETN Receives the Horizon Health Education Program Award

On October 22, 2004, the Tuberculosis Education and Training Network (TB ETN) was awarded the Horizon Health Education Program Award by CDC’s Public Health Education and Promotion Network (PHEP-Net). PHEP-Net, an employee organization for health educators at CDC and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), presented the award as part of the 2004 CDC Health Education Day.

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 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.

TB ETN was nominated for the award because of its significant growth and impact since its inception in 2001. There are now over 400 members in the network representing 48 states within the United States and a growing international representation. The network provides members opportunities to improve their skills, abilities, and knowledge about available resources and promotes collaborative efforts between TB programs and other organizations conducting TB education and training. Maria Fraire of DTBE accepted the award on behalf of TB ETN; her acceptance remarks are included in the next article.
