Last year, dozens of nominations were received from across the nation. Nominees included providers, manufacturers, association executives, and other professionals in home medical equipment, rehab, respiratory, and mastectomy. Of those, four finalists were selected to travel to Medtrade in Atlanta where Georgie Blackburn was presented the award. 

Blackburn, who is now an honorary selection committee member, looks forward to playing a role in motivating her peers to nominate a deserving candidate for HME Woman of the Year.

“There are so many women, so many individuals in this industry, that I take my cues from,” said Blackburn, VP, Government Relations and Legislative Affairs, BLACKBURN’S. “Everyone knows a woman who deserves to be recognized for her contributions – to our industry, our communities, and our patients. And I encourage everyone to nominate someone and shine a light on the exceptional people advancing our industry.”

Nominations are due by August 9 and can be submitted online by clicking the submit nomination button on this page. The winner will be announced during a special ceremony at Medtrade in Atlanta October 21-23, 2019.
