Walter S. Mangold Award

The Walter S. Mangold Award was first awarded to Walter Mangold in 1956 for his lifetime dedication to upgrading the professional education and performance of sanitarians; 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 professionals throughout the world.

When we honor those who exemplify the highest quality and service to humankind in environmental health, we also recognize the many in the profession who labor daily without recognition, which is the nature of the environmental health professional’s work.

Award details, eligibility, nomination process, evaluation, and instructions for nomination can be found in the History and Nominating Criteria (PDF).
