We know that our members do not work for any award or recognition however it is important to the field of public health that we stop and recognize your accomplishments. NACDD Awards provide the field of chronic disease with an opportunity to shine the light on your work far beyond public health. They provide legislators, industry partners and health care providers with information they might not receive any other way. Below are the award descriptions.
