Award for Excellence in Multicultural Aging

The Award for Excellence in Multicultural Aging recognizes organizations that have demonstrated high-quality, innovative programs enhancing the lives of a multicultural aging population. The nominee organization or program must be an ASA and NOMA member; their program should have a successful track record, and have been in existence for at least one year. Nominee programs will be evaluated on the program’s potential for replication, whether or not the organization is involved in partnerships or coalitions with other groups, and the involvement of consumers and volunteers in program design.

The winning program will be featured in the Aging in America Conference program book, in AgeBlog, and on this page. The award is typically presented during the NOMA Program and at the opening general session at the annual Aging in America conference.
