AAFSPHV Award Nominations

The American Association of Food Safety and Public Health Veterinarians (AAFSPHV) is currently seeking nominations for two annual awards:

The Public Health Veterinarian of the Year award recognizes a veterinarian in full time public health practice for his/her accomplishments in the field of public health. Nominees must be current members of the American Veterinary Medical Association; however, membership in the AAFSPHV is not required. Self-nominations are encouraged!
