Calderone City Health Award

The Drs. Frank and Mary Calderone City Health Award was established by their daughter, Francesca Calderone-Steichen, to memorialize her parents’ lifelong commitment to public health, specifically within the New York City community. To honor the Calderone Family’s public health legacy, an award of $15,000 is given to a not-for-profit, community-based organization in one of the City's five boroughs that has demonstrated outstanding dedication to grassroots work in the field of public health.

The Columbia Mailman School of Public Health is pleased to announce that nominations are being accepted for The Drs. Frank and Mary Calderone City Health Award.
