I am excited to announce that I have been nominated for the WEGO Health Patient Leader Award in the 2018 WEGO Health Awards.


WEGO Health is a mission-driven company connecting healthcare with the experience, skills, and insights of patient leaders. They are the world’s largest network of patient leaders, working across virtually all health conditions and topics. Click here to learn more about their Patient Leader Network.

The WEGO Health Awards were created to celebrate those who tirelessly support the mission of WEGO Health: to empower the patient voice. With 16 award categories, the WEGO Health Awards are the only awards across all conditions and platforms, that recognize the over 100 thousand inspiring Patient Leaders who raise awareness, share information, and support their communities - but often without recognition.

I am extremely humbled to be nominated for this award. The migraine and mental health communities mean everything to me and it is important that I help amplify the voices and stories of everyone in them. Through sharing my story and being transparent about living with chronic pain and mental illness, I hope to chip away at the hurtful stigmas attached to both.

I am partners with the American Migraine Foundation and Shades for Migraine, and am a stakeholder with the Coalition for Headache and Migraine Patients and the Headache and Migraine Policy Forum. Through my advocacy work and blog, my mission is to make a very invisible disease visible to the rest of the world and validate the real pain of millions.

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. It would mean everything to have the opportunity to meet and connect with other patient leaders who do such selfless and inspiring work.

I’m now looking to my incredibly supportive network to help endorse me for this award. There are two easy ways to endorse that only take seconds of your time!
