Every year we receive more and more deserving Patient Leader nominations in the WEGO Health Awards. This year we had almost 2,500 nominations and close to 30,000 endorsements! A huge thank you to all of the judges that helped comb through these fantastic nominees to award our 16 WEGO Health Award Winners this year.
Each year we add to the distinguished class of Patient Leaders honored with a WEGO Health Award. These advocates, influencers and experts are making a difference within healthcare one tweet, post, event, project and engagement at a time. As we honor a new class of Patient Leaders today, we’d be remiss not mention and give praise to the 2016 WEGO Health Award Winners.
