Below is an email that WEGOhealth circulated announcing that nominations are now being excepted for their 2012 awards. I was honored to be nominated last year and was surprised when I received the first ever 'Advocating for Another' Award. I want to urge you to take a look at their categories and nominate your favorite writers from the diabetes online community. WEGO is a great way to make our DOC voices heard around the Internet.
As a result of my win last year WEGO has invited me to the e-Patient Connections 2012 conference in Philadelphia next week. There I will be recognized as the 2011 winner and get to speak about what my advocacy means to me. So again, please nominate your favorite diabetes blogger so that perhaps another of us can have this and many other great experiences, next year and beyond.
WEGOhealth is covering my lodging expensise and travel for the conference.
