The Walter S. Mangold Award, which was established in 1955, was first awarded to Walter Mangold in 1956 for his lifetime dedication to upgrading the professional education and performance of sanitarians; to raising the standards of the environmental health practitioner, and professionalizing the individual, throughout the country; and for innovating his many brilliant programs that helped shape the environmental health profession throughout the world.


Now, more than fifty-five years later, the Mangold Award continues to recognize individuals for outstanding contributions to the advancement of the environmental health professional. These contributions include, but are not limited to, promoting the art and science of environmental health through the development of innovative programming, which can be used to resolve environmental health problems in a multitude of areas, including at the national level; acting as a mentor and role model for peers and others; preventing disease and injury and promoting good health in communities, utilizing the highest standards of modern environmental health practices; and continually urging others to improve by use of all forms of modern communication.


Please take the time to congratulate Welford on his selection for this well deserved award.
