I am excited to announce that I have been nominated for three, yes three awards: the WEGO Health “Advocating for Another” (which I won last year and am honored to be nominated again this year” Award, Best in Show Instagram, and Best in Show Blog in the 2018 WEGO Health Awards.
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 without recognition.
Advocating for individuals with Down Syndrome like my son is my life’s work. I love what I do if I can change one person’s perception of Down Syndrome, that is one person who will embrace an individual with Down Syndrome. I also want to take a moment to thank those that have nominated me this year for these three different categories.
This year, the 16 WEGO Health Award winners will be honored at an in-person celebration in October co-hosted by the Society of Participatory Medicine at the Connected Health Conference. I’m now looking to my incredibly supportive network to help endorse me for these awards.
