o4a, Medical Mutual Award Innovative Programs for Older Ohioans


The Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging (o4a) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2022 Medical Mutual Aging and Disability Innovation Awards. The newly established distinction recognizes and advances new, effective and replicable programs that are successfully meeting both the social and health needs of older adults and people with disabilities across Ohio.

This year’s recipients were announced during the conclusion of the o4a Five-Star Innovation and Education Summit, held on June 6 and 7 in Columbus. With an audience of more than 200 professionals in the aging and disability network across the state, o4a recognized the four highest-ranking, most cutting-edge programs recently implemented by Ohio-based Area Agencies on Aging.
