Nominate a Special Woman in Your Life for Hackensack Meridian Health's 2nd Annual Women Who Rock Hall of Fame

Community members are invited to nominate a special woman to be considered for the Hackensack Meridian Health Women Who Rock Hall of Fame. Winners will be announced at our 2nd annual Women ROCK event this fall and will receive a special honoree gift, along with other surprises and delights. Nominations are due by June 23.

We all know a woman who rocks our world, who not only inspires us, but empowers us. This is an opportunity to honor the many great women in our community. Perhaps she has done a great deal for her family or community, has overcome adversities such as an illness or personal hardship, or perhaps she has beat the odds and accomplished some great things in her life. The reasons to nominate someone are endless!

Winners must be able to attend the Hackensack Meridian Health Women ROCK event on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Convention Hall and Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, where the Integrative Health & Medicine team will help you learn how to rock your health – mind, body, and spirit. All submissions are due by Friday, June 23, 2017 by completing an online nomination form at HackensackMeridianHealth.org/WomenWhoRock. Nominees must be age 14 and above, with winners being selected for various decades. There is no limit to the number of nominees that someone may submit.

The Women ROCK event is part of our Lyrics for Life series. For more information, visit HackensackMeridianHealth.org/WomenRock.
