Each day, there are thousands of patients and caregivers sharing their health stories, raising awareness, and inspiring others to keep fighting for their health. Unfortunately, too often their incredible impact goes unnoticed, which is precisely why we created the WEGO Health Awards. It’s our mission to empower the patient voice, and that includes shining a light on the great work these patient leaders are doing.
Even in our 9th year of the program, we continue to be in absolute awe of the effort, hope and change these patient leaders are creating. With over 13k nominations this year, we’re honored to celebrate more patient leaders than ever before. Across all platforms, channels and health conditions – this year’s nominees were truly in a league of their own.
Our judges had the near-impossible task of narrowing down all of these the nominees! For our first few rounds of judging, members of the online health community volunteer their time to sort through the +13k nominations to just 96 finalists. From there, our industry judges score each finalists to ultimately uncover the 16 WEGO Health Awards winners.
The Celebration Continues…
We may be closing out our virtual ceremony, but the fun is just beginning!
Each winner is entitled to $500 towards their advocacy mission, a seat on our compensated Patient Leader Advisory Board and the chance for industry exposure events over the next year.
Over the next year, we’ll be showcasing the work of all our finalists and collaborating closely with the winners. Stay tuned for more tips, tricks, and strategies from these top patient leaders. In the meantime, help us celebrate this year’s winners – follow them on social below and give them a shout for their achievements!
