We are pleased to announce that SAGE’s National Resource Center on LGBT Aging’s training program is being honored for the second time this month with another nationally recognized award for excellence! Today, at the American Society on Aging’s national conference, Aging in America, SAGE will be accepting the Gloria Cavanaugh Award for Excellence in Training and Education. This annual award is given to a training program that shows significant and long-term contributions to the field of aging, and demonstrates exemplary training and educational efforts.
Since the inaugural training in 2011, through a national network of expert certified trainers, SAGE’s National Resource Center on LGBT Aging has been providing training for service providers on how to provide culturally competent care to LGBT older adults. To date, we have trained over 3,640 people, at hundreds of agencies, in over 30 states across the country with measurable results. Take a look at what people are saying about the strength of the trainings and request a training yourself!
