Last year, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department developed the Harold K. Bengsch Award to honor Bengsch—the department’s previous long-serving director of public health—and his unwavering belief in the value of collaboration and cross-sector approaches. The public health system works best when people across our community collaborate to improve the health of our population.
This year’s award recipient—to be announced soon—will be honored at the reception for a lifelong dedication to the public health system and our community.
The reception itself closes National Public Health Week. SGCHD could think of no better way to highlight the value of public health during National Public Health Week than to give an award named after Bengsch, one of public health’s most vocal supporters and advocates, to those standout individuals in our community whose work behind the scenes can sometimes go unnoticed.
