Nominations Invited for Rosalynn Carter Leadership in Caregiving Award


The Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving is accepting nominations for its Leadership in Caregiving Award. The annual award recognizes leadership in implementing innovative partnerships between community agencies and caregiving researchers to bridge the gap between science and practice. These partnerships help move effective caregiver support programs to widespread use in the community more quickly and efficiently.

The award-winning team will be announced at the RCI's National Summit to be held October 5-7, 2011 in Americus, Georgia. Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter will present the team with a cash award of $20,000 and a statuette. The cash award is intended to support the team's efforts in implementing effective caregiver interventions at the community level.

Winning partnerships must have clearly demonstrated: dedication to developing effective evidence-based caregiver interventions that improve the health and well-being of caregivers; collaboration and partnerships between all stakeholders in the caregiving process; potential for developing or more effectively using financial, educational, and human resources to support caregivers; effective reach into the target population; and potential to serve as a model for other individuals, groups, organizations or communities in efforts to better support caregivers.

Complete program guidelines and nomination forms are available at the Rosalynn Carter Institute Web site.
