Nancy D. Zionts Receives Pruitt/Kelly Award for Age-Friendly Leadership
On November 24, Jewish Healthcare Foundation COO and Chief Program Officer Nancy D. Zionts, MBA was given the Pruitt/Kelly Award of Excellence for Age-Friendly Leadership from the Southwestern PA Partnerships for Aging at their annual virtual meeting. The award was presented by Paul Winkler, President and CEO of Presbyterian SeniorCare, a long-time partner of JHF. Paul said the award is given to honor Nancy's 25+ years as an aging champion through her work at JHF, stating that Nancy has been at the table for every significant conversation about advancing the cause of aging in the region and the state. Most recently, Nancy's work has focused on the implementation of Community Health Choices and the development of a statewide Learning Network for providers as part of the Educational Support and Clinical Coaching Program and Regional Response Health Collaborative Program during the pandemic. Paul stated that Nancy upholds the values of the award's namesakes, both Mary Anne Kelly and Charlie Pruitt, both of whom Nancy knew well and worked with and learned from for years. We are proud to congratulate Nancy on the receipt of this award and grateful for her collaboration and service to JHF and seniors across Pennsylvania.
