Participation as a Champion is open to all individuals, regardless of affiliation with a health department. TFAH will track participation and notify eligible recipients when requirements for the Champion designation have been met.
All state, territorial, local, and tribal public health departments are eligible to participate in the Recognition Program.
Health departments that desire to become an AFPHS Recognized department should download and complete the AFPHS Action Plan and send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a designated point of contact.
Activities may be selected from the database of examples outlined according to the 6Cs Framework or may select actions that better meet the needs of older adults in their jurisdiction. Activities already under way are eligible for inclusion in the action plan.
