2022 Vita R. Ostrander Advocacy Award

This year we salute Carol Hanlon with the Vita R. Ostrander Advocacy Award for her work on the 2022 CO-AGE Priority Issue “Expanding Long-Term Care Options. Ms. Hanlon recruited Chairman Lee Hawkins (District 27) to sponsor the initiative as HR 768 and helped to recruit five more bipartisan sponsors. She strategized with GCOA from fall 2021 throughout the 2022 legislative session. In her work this year, Ms. Hanlon has demonstrated exemplary leadership as a statewide, legislative advocate to improve the quality of life for older Georgians.
