2015 Friedman Center Award Winners
On April 22, 2015, the Harvey A. Friedman Center for Aging at the Institute for Public Health at Washington University recognized two individuals for their service to older adults in St. Louis at the center’s annual lecture. The 2015 Harvey A. & Dorismae Hacker Friedman Award recognizes individuals in the St. Louis Metro region who make outstanding contributions in service to older adults. Individuals may make this contribution through practice, education, advocacy or research. The 2015 Harvey A. & Dorismae Hacker Friedman Award for Excellence in Service to Older Adults was awarded to Karen Berry Elbert and Sherrill Wayland.
Ms. Berry Elbert manages the St. Louis NORC at the Jewish Federation of St. Louis. She was instrumental in developing this national model program to help older adults remain living independently and has directed it since its inception in 2002. She has over 35 years of experience in the non-profit community, including administering a philanthropic foundation, grant making consultation and leadership positions with the United Way of Greater St. Louis, Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis and Congregation Temple Israel.
