Is there someone you know going above and beyond to inspire health and wellness in our community? Help us celebrate their efforts with a Desert Health Wellness Award nomination.

Now in its fourth year, the Wellness Awards recognize and honor those local people and businesses inspiring others to become the healthiest – and best – versions of themselves. Past nominees include teachers, schools, fitness centers, food distribution programs, spas, chefs, health academy students, doctors, nurses, yogis, authors and more.

2019 categories include Individual, Business, Non-profit, Integrative Health Care Practitioner (licensed health care professionals) and the 18 and under Youth award.

All approved nominees will be featured in Desert Health and honored at the evening celebration on May 22.

The festive event brings together health and wellness influencers and fans for a bountiful reception, dinner, guest speaker and the exhilarating award presentations.

This year’s event will benefit two organizations: Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine, the valley’s only free medical clinic staffed by volunteer doctors, dentists and nurses, and the Human Health Initiative (HHI) launched by 2017 Wellness Award winner and teacher Jason Tate to expand youth wellness education. HHI’s goal is to transform the way we educate the next generation by providing youth with extensive knowledge of the biology of nutrition, the tools and rationales for regular physical activity, and the coping mechanisms for dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression.

The Desert Health Wellness Awards would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors: NBC Palm Springs, Cambria USA, Eisenhower Health, Fresh Juice Bar, Desert Oasis Healthcare, Isning Gamez, and Prime Time Produce. To join us, please contact

The Desert Health Wellness Awards are open to the public and all are invited to attend! The new location will be announced in our next issue.
