About the National Health
In 2019, the National Health Information Awards celebrates 26 years of honoring high-quality consumer health information. The National Health Information Awards is organized by the Health Information Resource Center (HIRC), a national clearinghouse for professionals who work in consumer health fields. Other HIRC programs include the Digital Health Awards, and National Women’s Health & Fitness Day.
All materials and/or programs developed and/or distributed between
January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018 are eligible for the 2019 competition.
The materials or programs submitted must have been developed
for use by consumers, not health professionals.
Please add your name to our mailing list for information on future announcements.
Entry Categories and Divisions:
There are 21 entry categories and 17 entry divisions for the competition.
$65 per entry
(Certain categories require an extra fee.)
Gold, Silver, Bronze and Merit certificates will be awarded by Class, Division and Category. Using a rating scale of 1 to 100 points, a panel of consumer health experts from across the nation will judge the entries based on content, format, success in reaching the targeted audience and overall quality. All judges’ decisions are final. Winners will be announced in late summer.
Winners will receive Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Merit recognition certificates, a one-year license to use the awards program logo for marketing, listing on healthawards.com, and an awards packet with sample media materials to help promote the achievement.
