About the Rodale 100

How we created our list of winners

January 22, 2016

Our inaugural Rodale 100 list celebrates those who share the Rodale, Inc. mission: to inspire health, healing, happiness and love in the world, starting with you. The list is not ranked; as it represents a cross section of industries, nonprofit organizations, and individuals from around the world, we did not feel we could create a one-size-fits-all metric for determining merit.

To assemble our list, we collected open nominations from our international network of journalists, experts and activists who are at the forefront of their respective fields in the health and wellness space. All submissions were rigorously evaluated to look at significant accomplishments made in 2015, so the final list of honorees demonstrate:

  • Groundbreaking innovations that revolutionize how we see the world while driving others in the industry to embrace creativity
  • Positive impact that affects changes on a local, national and/or global scale
  • A displayed commitment to the welfare of human beings, animals, and the environment
