Award Programs

WellCare Health Plans, Inc. and The CommUnity Commitment together sponsor the CommUnity Heroes and HealthCare Heroes Award Programs to recognize unsung heroes in our communities. The awards honor community members and healthcare professionals who take action to improve our communities.

Regional winners are selected by a selection committee in each state. As a regional winner, the Heroes also become nominees for the national CommUnity Heroes or HealthCare Heroes Award. The national winners are chosen by a selection committee coordinated across all states. All regional winners receive recognition from WellCare Health Plans, Inc.  and The CommUnity Commitment collaborative. In addition, national winners will receive recognition at the annual HealthConnections conference hosted in partnership with the National Association of Area Agency on Aging and Disabilities.

Entries that do not contain the required information will not be accepted. Please provide all appropriate contact information requested for both the nominator and nominee. Nominators and nominees also acknowledge and agree that the entries become the sole property of WellCare Health Plans, Inc., on behalf of The CommUnity Commitment collaborative, who thereby have the right to publish, display, edit, promote and use entries in an otherwise appropriate manner.
