Awards & Honors

Journal of Environmental Health, October 2008 | Go to article overview

Awards & Honors


The awards ceremony kicked off to a fast start as the audience was treated to a special and enormously energetic hoop dance performance that was played out by a local Native American family. All in all, twelve different presenters combined to recognize over 73 different environmental health professionals and students for outstanding work in our field of practice, making this year's awards ceremony one of NEHA's most memorable.

The awards ceremony was memorable this year for several reasons. Apart from the fact that the ceremony moved at a nice and fast pace, there were many surprises, memorable moments, and touching events. One of the surprises involved Dr. John Barry receiving the Journal Editor's Award. John was unaware that he was this year's recipient. The award was presented to an astonished John only after he had read a dummy script on behalf of a fictitious award winner. The audience then gave John a loud and heartfelt ovation for his wonderful work as the technical editor of the Journal.

NEHA's executive director was also caught by surprise when incoming NEHA President Dick Pantages arose unannounced to present Nelson Fabian with a special award from the board of directors on the occasion of his 25th anniversary as NEHA's executive director.

A. Harry Bliss Editor's Award

Dr. John M. Barry

Dr. A. Harry Bliss was the Journal editor in 1969, the year this award was first presented. When he retired, the award was named after him to honor his 40 years of involvement in Journal production. NEHA often gives the annual Harry Bliss Editor's Award to outstanding writers and columnists, but the award may also go to individuals who, through the Journal of Environmental Health, advance the cause and interests of the association.

This year, we are proud to announce that the 2008 recipient of the Harry Bliss Award is Dr. John M. Barry, technical editor for the Journal of Environmental Health. Dr. Barry has been an unparalleled asset to the Journal program. In addition, he has provided years of service to both NEHA and the profession in a variety of capacities. He was the 1993-1994 NEHA president, and prior to his retirement, he served as the director and then the deputy director of the environmental protection program for Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. …
