The Telebehavioral Health Institute (TBHI) is proud to be celebrating TBHI’s 10th anniversary in 2019. To honor the many professionals who have diligently worked to develop successful telehealth programs, TBHI will celebrate its 10th anniversary by hosting the TBHI Excellence in Telehealth Award. Winning programs will be selected by the TBHI community using these criteria:
The grand prize winner will receive $500 and invited to collaborate with TBHI in writing and publishing a project summary article to the Journal for Technology in the Behavioral Sciences (JTiBS) to highlight the program’s effectiveness. Three runner-up winners will be given full access to TBHI’s Telehealth Level I Professional Certificate Training Program, which is accompanied by 15 CME or CE hours (training program value is $379 each.)
