UNCW Public Health Student to Receive Outstanding Undergraduate Major of the Year Award

Tuesday, April 06, 2021

Public health senior Paige Lundberg has been selected to receive the Eta Sigma Gamma National Commission for Health Education Credentialing Outstanding Undergraduate Major of the Year Award.

The Outstanding Undergraduate Major of the Year Award is given to one student from each institution that offers a health education academic program and recognizes students for their involvement and commitment to the field during their time in the program. Lundberg received the award on April 5, during a virtual award ceremony at the annual Society of Public Health Education conference.

“Being chosen to receive this award is really an honor, because I have so many great peers in the public health program who I see as equally deserving,” Lundberg said. “I think it's a testament to the value of hard work and the value of teamwork, because, even though it's an individual award, I know I couldn’t have been as involved or successful as I have been the last four years without the wonderful support network that was there for me along the way.”
