January 31 at 3P.M., in what can only be described as a twitter chat psychedelic frenzy at WEGO Health, #HAAwards announced their Health Activists award/s winners. I was nominated for two different awards and was a finalist for another (see: Chato Stewart Makes The Cut! – Health Activist Award Finalists: Hilarious Health Activist). This was my first full participation in a twitter chat, there must’ve been over 200 people tweeting and re-tweeting the same messages of “congratulations” to all the award winners.
Nonetheless, you’re here for the answer to the real question… Did Chato Stewart who was a Hilarious Health Activist Award Finalist win the award?
WEGO Health is a social media online health community with health activists from every sort of health condition! Focusing on the top 10% of influencers, organizers, connectors, leaders and contributors are passionate about helping others lead healthier lives.
This past year (2011) they started the Health Activist Awards. I was nominated for two awards from my peers. The nominations were given to Health Activist Judging Panels to pick their favorites out of all the nominees. It was a time-intensive task and the judges took the responsibility quite seriously.
Let’s look at the Hilarious Health Activist Award Finalists. One of these will be the winner – but all are incredible Health Activists that you should know.

Caption: Is Your House A Castle or a Toxic Dump?
I grew up in a Toxic Dump! No, really. It was rumored that back in the 50s, the projects I grew up there was an illegal toxic dump site. Back then the housing development was just a swamp.
I grew up in an emotionally toxic environment as well.
On January 14th, I was so privileged to be invited to display my cartoons at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall for the Sunshine from Darkness Symposium. It was a FREE COMMUNITY EDUCATION SYMPOSIUM OPEN TO THE PUBLIC for friends, family, health care professionals and those personally diagnosed with any form of mental illness.
I was there last year and had a blast. A local printer printed up my cartoons and I gave them away to my peers. This year the printer could not help out. I had to print them myself. My end cost was $250.00 — OUCH, but I knew that they would get into to the hands of people who could appreciate them.
