WEGO Health Announces Open Nominations for the Eighth Annual WEGO Health Awards

WEGO Health, the premier network of patient advocates and influencers, today announced the opening of nominations for the annual WEGO Health Awards, the only awards program that recognizes the impact of patient leaders across all health conditions and social media platforms. Now in its eighth year, the WEGO Health Awards program is the world’s first crowdsourced recognition of patients and caregivers who are transforming healthcare and empowering patient communities.

Nominations are open through July 28, 2019, and anyone is welcome to submit. WEGO Health Awards encompass all major social media platforms and feature 15 Best in Show categories, including Best Blog, Best Kept Secret, Lifetime Achievement, and Rookie of the Year.

“We’re gratified by the exponential growth our Awards program has experienced since its launch eight years ago,” said Jack Barrette, WEGO Health’s founder and CEO. “These are the Patient Leaders who are recognized by their peers as the most passionate, hard-working advocates in the world. Their impact on other patients’ lives deserves to be celebrated, not just by the patient community, but by the healthcare industry as a whole.”

WEGO Health Awards nominations are crowdsourced through thousands of patients and caregivers who are active in online communities. The WEGO Health Awards are a high-visibility opportunity for Patient Leaders to be recognized for their commitment to helping others and collaborating with the broader healthcare community on a range of patient-centered initiatives.

More than 4,000 patient leaders were nominated in 2018, who in turn garnered more than 33,000 endorsements from their peers in online patient communities. The program has gained widespread recognition globally, as evidenced by the more than 1.7 million people following the WEGO Health Awards Twitter chat in 2018.

The personal impact of the WEGO Health Awards is profound. Natalie Beavers, an epilepsy Patient Leader and the winner of a WEGO Health Lifetime Achievement Award said, “It's great to hear from those that actually see or know the work you do in the community, and to be an inspiration to others in spite of dealing with an illness yourself.”

This year’s award winners will be honored at the second annual HLTH Conference in Las Vegas, October 28, 2019, and will receive a $7,000 prize pack that includes:

  • Airfare, accommodations and free admission to the HLTH Conference in Las Vegas, NV, October 27-30, 2019
  • Personalized WEGO Health Awards plaque
  • The opportunity to participate in patient panels and roundtables with other industry leaders at the HLTH Conference
  • Participation as a social media ambassador in the lead up to the conference and then live stream during the event
  • Compensated 2020 WEGO Health Patient Leader Advisory Board position

Winners will be announced during a virtual ceremony on WEGO Health’s social channels September 18– 20, 2019.
