Minnix receives Robert L. Kahn award
LeadingAge President and CEO Larry Minnix is the recipient of the 2015 Robert L. Kahn award, which recognizes excellence and significant contributions to the field of successful aging.
The Kahn Award was created in 2008 by the Masterpiece Alliance Foundation, and was first awarded to its namesake, Robert Kahn, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Public Health at the University of Michigan. Past winners include Harry Moody, Ph.D, a recently retired Vice President and Director of Academic Affairs for AARP; Toni Antonucci, Ph.D., professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan; and Bill Thomas, M.D., founder of the Eden Alternative and creator of the Green House Project.
"Larry's unyielding commitment to enhancing the aging services field has been evident throughout his career and has forever changed the aging experience in the United States,” said Masterpiece Living President Roger Landry, M.D., M.P.H., in a statement.
In January, Minnix announced plans to retire from LeadingAge by the end of 2015. He has been LeadingAge's top executive since 2000
