The Research Engineering Rehabilitation Center on Technologies to Support Successful Aging with Disability (RERC TechSAge) was among finalists recognized at Atlanta Magazine’s 5th Annual Groundbreaker Awards Ceremony.
As a finalist for the award, TechSAge was highlighted for its innovations in making environments more accessible to aging populations, and in creating a more user-friendly world—no matter what our abilities or age.
Other honorees included the Clarkston Community Center Senior Refugee Program, Amy’s Place, and award winner Dr. Monica Parker, who was recognized for her community outreach through Emory’s centers on Alzheimer’s Disease Research and Brain Health.
Held at the Atlanta History Center, the Groundbreaker Awards program was launched in 2012 with the goal of honoring the people and projects that make Atlanta a better place to live. The 12 honorees were recognized for meeting the challenges posed by aging head-on, with ingenuity, purpose, and compassion.
