Intergenerational Center becomes first recipient of national Eisner Prize

The Eisner Foundation has established the annual Eisner Prize for Intergenerational Excellence that includes a $100,000 cash award to the individual or non-profit organization it decides is doing the best work to help senior citizens and young people help each other.

The first recipient is the College of Public Health’s Intergenerational Center which offers a variety of programs from its base in Philadelphia to communities ranging from rural Minnesota to Southern California. The organization's founder, Nancy Henkin, will receive the award from former Walt Disney CEO Michael Eisner on Oct. 27 at the Grantmakers in Aging conference in McLean, Va. Read more.
