Presenting the 2019 WEGO Health Awards Winners

Each year, the WEGO Health Awards program aims to shed light on the advocacy work of Patient Leaders across all condition areas, platforms, and continents.

This year, the eighth cycle of the program, proved to be the biggest celebration yet. With over 6,000 nominations and 130,0000 endorsements, we were able to recognize more Patient Leaders than ever before.

With so many nominations this year, the competition was fierce, but after 3 rounds of judging, and the help network members and the Finalist Judging Panel, the WEGO Health Award winners were revealed!

The Celebration Continues…

We may be closing out our virtual ceremony, but the fun is just beginning!

Winners are invited to an in-person WEGO Health Awards ceremony at HLTH in Las Vegas to be recognized for their advocacy impact. As leaders in the community, their voices will be featured on patient panels, roundtables and more during the industry’s biggest conference this October.

Now without further adieu, we present to you, the 2019 WEGO Health Awards winners:
