Announcing: The Health Activist Awards 2011

You inspire us every day with your commitment to your online health community – and it’s time we celebrate. This year has been the biggest year in Health Activism’s history – so let’s reflect on all the amazing accomplishments. We’re announcing our first ever Health Activist Awards to honor and reward all of the great work that Health Activists did in 2011.


What better way to commemorate awesome milestones than by bringing everyone in the Health Activist community together to share what they love. We’ve created an interactive Awards Program to get you and your communities excited to share what has moved you, inspired you, and made a real difference in how you think about healthcare and living well.


Here are the details.


What: The Health Activist Awards: 2011 – A WEGO Health Program created to reward Health Activists for their accomplishments over the course of a calendar year as well as to bring awareness, attention, and a voice to their pursuits.

Why: To recognize well-known Health Activists for their continued efforts but also to recognize and showcase the newcomers who have inspired us all with their passion and dedication and will make a huge difference in the online community.

When: Nominations will begin December 1, 2011. Winners will be announced in January 2012.

How: We want everyone to be involved so we will be taking nominations for each of the 10 Health Activist Award categories. After we review all nominations, a panel of Health Activist judges and WEGO Health Team members will come together to select the winner. Winners will be announced in January through a fanfare of posts, spotlights, and features. Each winner will receive an exclusive Health Activist Award Prize pack.
