Social Health Awards

Everything You Need to Know About the Social Health Awards

The Social Health Awards were created to embody the mission of the Social Health Network: to empower Patient Leaders.

Previously known as the WEGO Health Awards, this program has proven to be one of the best ways to honor, recognize, and celebrate the work of Health Leaders for more than a decade.

The goal and intention of the Social Health Awards is to empower and celebrate those leading the online health community – because the work of Health Leaders is something to celebrate!

What's new this year?

There are a couple of changes from last year that we want everyone to be aware of:

How to nominate a Health Leader

We’d love to have you nominate all the great Health Leaders you know – the ones who are working tirelessly on their social channels, speaking engagements, consulting gigs, and other platforms. Everyone is welcome to nominate someone and help us ensure we recognize all the great leaders out there.

*Please note: In order to nominate or vote, you will need to create a new award-specific account (even if you have participated in previous years). This award platform is not your login. If you have questions about this, email
