Introducing the Social Health Network and Awards Program
Editorial Note: Nominations for 2022 are now closed.
We are very excited to announce the launch of the Social Health Network and Awards! The Social Health Network is a community for patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals with the goal of bringing empathy, support, and humanity to the healthcare industry.
What is social health?
We define social health as the dynamic, real-time action people take to find meaningful connections and share information that impacts the health journey. Our extensive research in social health and the patient experience, and continued patient leader partnerships, have given us the perfect opportunity to launch the Social Health Network.
“Social health is sharing our stories to support each other. It’s a reminder that we are not alone in our struggles.” – Social Health Network member Gabrielle
