Published in Member Communities on July 16, 2020

We are excited once again to announce that HME Woman of the Year nominations are open. We all know a woman who deserves to be recognized for her actions in the industry, and this is your opportunity to shine a light on all her accomplishments. Click here to submit your nomination.

Now in its fifth year, the award recognizes one woman in the industry who has made increasingly significant contributions throughout her career to her company, community, and the HME industry. HME Woman of the Year nominations are open to all women, regardless of title or position, who work within the HME industry.

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 Wendy Russalesi, chief compliance officer for AdaptHealth, was presented the award.

“The HME Woman of the Year award provides recognition and visibility for exceptional leaders in our industry,” said Clint Geffert, president of VGM & Associates. “Whether through advocacy work, sharing expertise at industry meetings or by being innovative to grow business or streamline operations, this award recognizes a woman who is blazing a path for the future.”

Nominations are due by August 14 and can be submitted online by filling out the form here. The winner will be announced during a virtual ceremony Oct. 22, 2020!
