Outstanding Service to Community Award

Metagenics and One Health are both deeply committed to community health and assisting those in need. The Outstanding Service to Community Award (OSCA) aims to recognise the increasing number of Practitioners who are similarly engaged in making a world that works for everyone.


To create a platform that inspires and recognises active engagement in community health by Metagenics Practitioners.

How It Will Work

Nominations of Practitioners that are actively contributing to positive health outcomes within their community (in addition to their clients) will be taken throughout the year.

Nominations may be put forward by Metagenics Area Sales Managers, a fellow Practitioner, or individuals themselves that are engaged in philanthropic initiatives.

Local, national and global initiatives can all be nominated, as can one-off events or ongoing regular programs.

To be eligible, initiatives must be philanthropic in intent and anchored in holistic health practices or principles. Activities may be directed towards disadvantaged and marginalised community groups or the general public.

This is a great opportunity to give the cause of your initiative exposure within the Natural Healthcare Practitioner community!

Approaches For Your Initiative May Include:

  • A workplace giving or staff volunteering program
  • A traditional charity model
  • A social enterprise or business
  • A fundraising initiative
  • Entirely education-based
  • Or be service and treatment focused

Examples Of How Practitioners Might Start Their Initiative:

  • Free public talks to local community groups
  • Discounted/free clinic appointments for disadvantaged community groups or members
  • Donations made to charity organisations (from the clinic/business)
  • Partnering with or participating in local charity activities
  • A percentage of sales committed to a cause
  • Bespoke initiatives developed by or participated in by Practitioners
  • Creation of employment pathways for disadvantaged community members
  • Advocacy and awareness-raising pieces on key issues affecting their community
Approaches for your initiative

Criteria For Evaluation

While the spirit of this idea is firmly rooted in inspiration rather than competition, in order to recognise extraordinary achievements in this space, consideration will be given to the following areas:

  • Scale of the program and/or results, including sustainability of impact
  • Number of people impacted
  • Number of hours volunteered
  • Amount of money raised or value of services delivered
  • Initiatives must be philanthropic in intent and anchored in holistic health practices or principles
  • Is the program accessible to marginalised or disadvantaged groups?
  • Is the program operating in isolation or does it partner with/leverage existing infrastructure, groups or services?
  • Is the impact of the initiative short, medium, or long-term?

In addition to Metagenics media promotion and exposure, the winner will be enlisted into the OSCA Hall of Fame and also receive:

  • Free registration to Congress;
  • $1,000 worth of products (RRP) to be used towards their cause (if applicable); and
  • An award from Metagenics and One Health Organisation recognising their achievements.
