The Pioneer Institute - Return to Community

June 23, 2017

Each year, the Better Government Competition focuses on one of the country’s biggest challenges. For 2017, its focus is to seek out novel ideas to establish effective care and sustainable support systems for the elderly, and to better leverage the social capital of our aging population.

The Institute was seeking ways to identify and promote ideas that ensure a better future for aging citizens via housing, health care and public health programs, as well as through unique partnerships between government agencies. As such, the Institute invited the Minnesota Board on Aging to apply for this award.

On Monday, June 19th, Senior LinkAge Line® community living specialist Sonia Rucks, from the Central Minnesota Council on Aging accepted the award on behalf of the Minnesota Board on Aging. This short video was featured at the awards dinner.
