In 2021, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) worked with the design consultancy firm J.A. Creative to create a unique infographic for local health departments, “Wastewater Surveillance: What’s SARS-CoV-2 got to do with it?”.
We are pleased to announce that the firm received the highest level award- Platinum- from the Association of Marketing and Communications Professional (AMCP) from the Hermes Creative Awards 2022 competition for this product. The award is judged by a professional peer panel with only 17% of entries receiving the Platinum award.
About the Infographic
Wastewater surveillance is a valuable public health tool that can support local health departments and leaders during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As implementation of this early infection detection technology continues to expand, it is essential that local public health become familiar with the process. NACCHO, supported by funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, developed an easy-to-read infographic describing the workings of wastewater surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 (the causative agent of COVID-19), how this process can help local health departments stay ahead of the pandemic, and how to get involved with implementing this system!
