I am beyond honored to announce I have been nominated for multiple awards in the 10th Annual WEGO Health Awards including “Advocating for Another,” “Lifetime Achievement Award” and “Best Team Performance.” (I have also been nominated for Best in Show: Podcast, but I don’t have a podcast. Maybe this is a hint to start one?!) This is an especially meaningful nomination since I have been involved with WEGO Health for more than 10 years now!
WEGO Health is a patient advocate network that helps to connect the healthcare industry with patient influencers as well as the online patient community. I have been sharing my celiac disease experience and advocacy through the WEGO Health network through online posts, clinical trial recruitment, Twitter chats, and more for over a decade. I’ve connected with so many other patient advocates who are speaking out for a number of chronic illnesses. It has been especially interesting to see the parallels between our patient communities, even if our diseases are quite different.
Now that I have been nominated, I need YOUR help with an endorsement. Your endorsement is a way to give nominees a visual show of support. Think of it as a way to give a shout-out or virtual hug. If my advocacy efforts for celiac disease have positively impacted you over the years, I kindly ask for your endorsement. It is all of you that keep me moving forward with my blog, social media, and community events. If I can help just one person, then it is totally worth it. I don’t want anyone in the celiac disease world to feel alone. Endorsements are only open for four more days!
