CCIH Executive Director Ray Martin has been selected to receive the 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award for the 1500-member International Health Section of the American Public Health AssociationAccording to the APHA, the International Health Section award honors "the visionaries and leaders in APHA who have shaped the direction of international health." 

"I am honored to be selected for this award, and am especially pleased to be in the company of CCIH members who have received the award through the years, including Dr. Henry Mosley, Dr. Carl Taylor, Drs. Warren and Gretchen Berggren, Dr. Samir Banoob, Dr. Tom Hall, Dr. John Wyon, and Dr. Jack Bryant," said Martin. "I am sure that my long career with USAID and the World Bank was a factor in the selection, but that doesn’t distinguish me from many other professional colleagues. I believe it was my service with CCIH that resulted in the award. CCIH, with its members, has helped to bring greater visibility to the major role played by the faith community in global health. While it is a treasured honor for me personally, I want all of us in CCIH to share in this recognition." The award will be given on October 30, 2012 at the annual meeting of APHA in San Francisco.
