Aunt Becky and The Band have been nominated to receive a WEGO Health Award in the “Best In Show: Community/Forum” category!

From the WEGO website: “Since its inception in 2011, the WEGO Health Awards have proven to be one of the best ways to connect the healthcare industry with top patient influencers. The WEGO Health Awards offers a way to introduce new Patient Leaders to the online community, and to allow network members the opportunity to recognize and say “thank you” to the leaders they look up to.”

“A Patient Leader uses his or her own health journey to raise awareness, to share knowledge, and to help others. They leverage social media to amplify their voice, to connect with peers, and to build communities. Patient Leaders are the thought leaders and transformers that industry leaders turn to for insights and expertise when they need to build a more patient-centered, consumer-driven healthcare ecosystem.”

As you can see, this is quite an honor to be nominated! This is a great way to get the word out about The Band! You can help us by giving your “endorsement” of the blog and our community. You can see our nomination here, then click on “Endorse The Band Back Together Project”! That’s it!! The three nominees with the most endorsements in each category on August 17th, 2018 will move on, along with two other nominees in each category decided by a judging panel, to be finalists for the WEGO Health Award. 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. To be able to attend this conference to interact, network, and collaborate with other Patient Leaders would be so amazing! This award brings recognition to us from the health community, visits from patient advocates, and most importantly, more traffic from people who need our resources and stories.

Can you help us by giving your endorsement for The Band? We’d love you forever and ever!! Thank you so much The Band, we COULD NOT do this without you!!!
