The "Doc" Ballard Award for Excellence in Public Health is NET Health's highest honor that is awarded to an individual or to an organization that exemplifies the concept of public health, as distinguished by dedication to the goal of protecting and promoting the health of the community.
The nominee does not have to be a doctor nor a health professional; services provided by the nominee can be in cultural, civic, religious, or philanthropic endeavors.
This year's honoree will be announced at the NET Health Board of Directors meeting scheduled for Thursday June 24th, 2021.
The NET Health 7-Day Rolling Rate calculates the average number of all COVID-positive cases from the previous seven days. That answer is then divided by the population of the county, then multiplied by 100,000, and that final number is the 7-Day Rolling Rate.
Each week, the 7-Day Rolling Rates for each county will be updated on this page and within the 'Educate Your Communities' page of NETHealthCOVID19.org.

The Carter BloodCare location in Tyler is low on blood and our request is to learn if you can donate blood at a community blood drive or at their main location at 815 South Baxter Drive in Tyler. No one ever knows if they will be in a situation when themselves, a family member, or a loved one may need a blood donation.
NET Health recently created two localized PSA's to convey the overall message for the need of anyone and everyone who is medically eligible to donate blood and rebuild our local blood supply.
