Local leaders recognized at first national aging conference in COVID-19 era
Arlington, VA, June 8, 2020 — Today, the National Council on Aging (NCOA), a trusted national leader working to ensure that every person can age well, is honoring four individuals and one organization from around the country who are working toward a just and caring society that allows all of us to age with dignity, purpose, and security. The honorees are being recognized at the NCOA 2020 Age+Action Virtual Conference, June 8-11.
“We are incredibly proud to recognize these outstanding local leaders who are working in communities every day to ensure that our older loved ones are healthy and safe,” said Jim Knickman, NCOA Interim President & CEO. “Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, these trailblazers were providing critical services like meals, benefits counseling, and transportation to enable older adults to stay independent. Today, their work is even more life-saving.”
