Nominated For WEGO Health Award!

Hi everyone. I am honored to announce that I’ve been nominated for the #WEGOHealthAwards! These awards seek to recognize Patient Leaders who are making an impact with their advocacy. Learn more & nominate today.

I have been nominated in the WEGO Best In Show Blog Award category. This nomination could not be possible without the support of all of you – my readers. Booktoots’ Healing has become a very popular resource for people dealing with a total knee replacement.

Here is information from the #WEGOHealth website:

Anyone who is an active and leading member of an online community, and
making a difference in healthcare, is eligible to be nominated. He or she should
provide the community with valuable information and support to make a
difference for other patients and caregivers. Nominees for an individual social
channel award must have a presence on that particular social channel, of course.

Please take a moment to visit the #WEGOHealthAwards site and nominate me yourself:

Thank you!

Marie B (aka Booktoots)
