Nominate “unsung heroes” in population health for recognition in the Hans Rosling Center

Exterior of the Hans Rosling Center for Population Health at nightThe University of Washington has announced an exciting opportunity to recognize and celebrate a diverse array of leaders in population health through the honorific naming of 18 spaces – including classrooms, meeting spaces and terraces – in and around the university’s new Hans Rosling Center for Population Health.

Nominations of individuals or teams who should be considered for honorific naming are now being accepted by the university’s Population Health Initiative. Nominees can be alive or deceased and should be a major contributor to advances in one or more of the UW’s pillars of population health: human health, environmental resilience, and social and economic equity. These pillars collectively encompass interconnected factors that influence how long and how well we live, from climate change and poverty to systemic inequities and health care.

The University is particularly interested in identifying “unsung heroes” who have not received the proper recognition for their contributions to improving population health. A balance between local, national and international nominees is also being sought.

Submissions are welcome from members of the UW as well as the community at large. All submissions will be reviewed and vetted by members of the Population Health Initiative’s executive council and other key university stakeholders, who will offer recommendations to UW President Ana Mari Cauce and the university’s Board of Regents for final decision.

Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. Pacific on Friday, April 2, 2021.
