I am excited to announce that I have been nominated for a ton of categories in the 6th Annual WEGO Health Awards – Best Kept Secret, Patient Leader Hero, Best in Show: Blog, and Advocating for Another.
WEGO Health is a mission-driven company connecting healthcare with the experience, skills, and insights of patient leaders. They are the world’s largest network of patient leaders, working across virtually all health conditions and topics. Click here to learn more about their Patient Leader Network.
The WEGO Health Awards were created to celebrate those who tirelessly support the mission of WEGO Health: to empower the patient voice. With 16 award categories, the WEGO Health Awards are the only awards across all conditions and platforms that recognize the over 100 thousand inspiring Patient Leaders who raise awareness, share information, and support their communities – but often do so without recognition.
I’ll be honest – I’m not sure who y’all are who nominated me, but you’re beautiful. It’s been a rough couple of years and I’m not always sure anyone is listening, watching, or paying attention to the work I’m doing. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not doing it for accolades, but it’s nice to get a pat on the back once in a while at the very least.
This year, the 16 WEGO Health Award winners will be honored at the 5th Annual Patient Advocacy Summit in Washington, DC October 23rd and 24th, 2017. How cool is that? It’s a big deal and would be a great thing for any of us to be able to attend. If you’d like more information about the summit, you can learn more here.
I’m now looking to my incredibly supportive network to help endorse me for this award. The best way to help out? Click here to be taken to my WEGO Health Awards profile where you can click “Endorse” under my nominee photo.
If I have ever supported you, made you laugh, or inspired you to keep fighting – please consider endorsing me for this award. You can continue to nominate and endorse your favorite health activists until September 1st.
