Wego Health Health Activist Awards for 2012

I just had an email from Wego Health, asking me to promote their Health Activist Awards for 2012.

I have to admit, I've been a bit slack this year.  Last year, I nominated heaps of great health activists, and a couple of them actually won awards (but not necessarily in the divisions I'd nominated them in.)

So far, I haven't nominated anyone, but I can think of a few people I ought to nominate, people who have helped put a spotlight on lupus awareness, and are there to support others online.

If you have a favourite health activist, you have until the end of December to nominate them as the best of the year.

The divisions are as follows:



  • Advocating for Another Award  Awarded to someone who raises awareness, speaks out, and advocates for the health condition of someone they love. 
  • Best Ensemble Cast (Non-profit, advocacy group, health organization) – Awarded to a group who advocates with tireless dedication and wide-reaching impact. 
  • Best in Show: Blog - Awarded to someone who exemplifies the use of blogging to raise awareness and make connections. 
  • Best in Show: Community/Forum - Awarded to someone who exemplifies the use of a community or forum to raise awareness and make connections. 
  • Best in Show: Facebook - Awarded to someone who exemplifies the use of Facebook to raise awareness and make connections. 
  • Best in Show: Twitter - Awarded to someone who exemplifies the use of Twitter to raise awareness and make connections. 
  • Best in Show: Video  Awarded to someone who exemplifies the use of video to raise awareness and make connections. 
  • Best Kept Secret  Awarded to someone in the online health community who is doing great work but hasn't gotten a lot of attention. 
  • Health Activist Hero  Awarded to an inspiring, supportive, and knowledgeable Health Activist who has truly changed people’s lives. 
  • Hilarious Health Activist Award - Awarded to the Health Activist who makes you laugh alongside their advocacy.  Nominate your favorite comedian.
  • Ms/Mr. Congeniality  Awarded to someone who always has a kind word, a positive note, and a virtual hug. 
  • Paperboy Award  Awarded to the Health Activist who always delivers the latest and greatest health news and research.
  • Rookie of the Year  Awarded to a Health Activist who came on the scene in 2012 but has inspired the entire community. 
  • Silver Stethoscope  Awarded to a healthcare professional who utilizes social media, online community, and technology to make the world a better place. 
  • Trailblazer Award  Awarded to the Health Activist who is ahead of every curve, excited by new technology, and encourages everyone to join them. 
  • Unsung Hero Award  Awarded to the member of your community who is always helping, advising, and sharing – but may not know how amazing and valuable they are.
