Jewish Home director receives Young Executive Award

Fairfield-snowLaura Snow, director of the Institute on Aging and the Center for Elder Abuse Prevention at The Jewish Home, received the 2013 Association of Jewish Aging Services (AJAS) Young Executive Award.

The award recognizes a healthcare professional under the age of 45, who has demonstrated significant potential in aging services through his or her achievements or innovative results. Snow received her award at the association’s annual conference in Beverly Hills on March 5.

Since receiving her master’s degree from the Yale School of Public Health in 2008, Snow has led The Jewish Home’s Center on Elder Abuse Prevention, Connecticut’s first shelter and abuse prevention program for the elderly, and the Institute on Aging, a consultative service for seniors in the community. In 2011, Snow received the Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging’s first ever Excellence in Aging Award.

In addition to her direct work with seniors, Snow is well-known for her leadership and advocacy on aging issues. She frequently presents at local community events to increase awareness about elder abuse and provide resources and referrals to those in need. She is also a resource in Hartford, where she is regularly called upon to offer her professional expertise. At the national level, Snow works closely with Sen. Richard Blumenthal’s office to provide advice on draft legislation, participate in public policy efforts and propose joint speaking and conference opportunities with the Senator and his staff.

“The Jewish Home is thrilled that AJAS is recognizing Laura for her tremendous work on behalf of seniors,” said Andrew H. Banoff, The Jewish Home president and chief executive officer. “We look forward to her continued leadership in both public policy and in operational excellence as she works with seniors and their families.”
