Purpose

The Men's Health Network offers awards for students and early career researchers who focus on the physical and mental health of American Indian and Alaska Native boys and men, and the need to address disparities that hinder their ability to fulfill roles as fathers, husbands, providers, leaders, and contributors to their communities.

Two awards are given each year:

  • The Eric D. Bothwell Award in American Indian and Alaska Native Men's Health recognizes and encourages continued study and development of an early career researcher in the field of American Indian and Alaska native men's health.
  • The Eric D. Bothwell Student Award in American Indian and Alaska Native Men's Health will encourage individuals to begin a career that focuses on the field of American Indian and Alaska native men's health.

Awards are presented at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA).

Eligibility

Eligible nominees are current early career researchers and students working in the field of American Indian and Alaskan native men's health.
