LifeChanger award nominations must be made by a patient or caregiver. Nominees entered for previous years remain eligible to participate in the contest but have to be nominated by a different patient/caregiver. If the nominee had won the yearly LifeChanger Award before, they can’t be considered for the contest for the following five years.
Nominations are collected throughout the year from patients across the country. All semifinalists are contacted and notified. The winner is notified one month prior to their profession's annual conference.
Semifinalists and winners are determined by Health Monitor Network's editorial staff, who may discuss the choices with editorial advisors.
