Age-friendly NYC has been chosen by the American Public Health Association (APHA) to receive its 2013 Archstone Foundation Award for Excellence in Program Innovation. The award will be presented to Dorian Block, Manager of Age-friendly NYC, during the APHA’s Aging and Public Health Section Awards Ceremony on Monday, November 4, 2013.
The Award for Excellence in Program Innovation was established by an endowment from the Archstone Foundation to the Aging & Public Health Section of the American Public Health Association to recognize best practice models in gerontology and geriatrics. The award is given annually to a program that innovatively links academic theory with applied practice in the field of public health. The APHA hopes that these model programs will be replicated and continue to be evaluated in an effort to enhance services to the aging population throughout the United States.
