TB Education and Training Network Updates
TB ETN Receives the Horizon Health Education
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.
Maria Fraire accepting the Horizon Award for TB ETN
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.
