The American Academy of Disaster Medicine (AADM) is issuing a final call for nominations for the Distinguished Service Award, which honors deserving individuals, organizations and communities positively affecting public health care in the disaster life cycle – preparation, planning, response and recovery.
Do you know an individual, organization or community making a positive difference in emergency preparedness and disaster health care response to disasters (such as Hurricane Katrina, the Haiti earthquake, the Japan quake and tsunami, or the recent wave of tornadoes from Oklahoma to North Carolina)?
If you do, AADM would like to hear from you.

The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2011. Recipient(s) will be recognized at the June 25, 2011 American Association of Physician Specialists House of Delegates and Annual Scientific Meeting in McLean, VA. The focus of the conference is “What Every Physician Should Know About Disasters.”
The American Academy of Disaster Medicine promotes the practice of disaster health care, ensuring that all physicians are aware and prepared to effectively respond to future disasters either natural or man-made.
