“As a young student, I benefited personally from the Foundationís support of medical education programs. Today, I take my role as an educator just as seriously as my work as a physician.”

Dr. Luis JŠuregui, PAHEF Trustee; Associate Director of Education for Internal Medicine & Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases, St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, Toledo, Ohio

International Awards

The Clarence H. Moore Award
for Voluntary Service

Guidelines & Form

Through 14 August 2006, the Foundation is accepting nominations for the Moore Award. Nominees may be national or local non-governmental or private organizations operating in Latin America or the Caribbean, whose work has resulted in outstanding contributions in public health.

Staff members of PAHO/WHO in active service, current official representatives to PAHO's governing bodies (i.e., Ministers of Health), sitting members of the Foundation's board of trustees, and members of the Clarence Moore Award Jury are ineligible to receive the award.

To be considered, the nomination must be completed in its entirety.

To make a nomination, please submit and address a letter of introduction signed by the nominator (no longer than one page on official letterhead) and a completed nomination form to the Clarence H. Moore Award Jury. The letter provides an opportunity to demonstrate the positive impact on health that the organizationís work has had.

Both the letter and completed nomination form must be signed and in English or Spanish. If the letter and nomination form are submitted electronically, they must have an electronic signature. Any unsigned and incomplete documents will not be considered.

An organization may nominate itself, but it is strongly suggested that the nomination package also include a letter of support from someone not affiliated with the organization.

Submitted items other than the letter and completed application form will not be considered by the jury. Nominations must be received no later than 14 August 2006. Nominations received after this date will not be accepted. We suggest sending the nomination at least 3 weeks before the deadline.
