Qualified submissions will exhibit pioneering partnership models that are making transformative strides towards a system of integrated care.

Previous winners of this prestigious award include, the Southern Maine Agency on Aging (SMAA) and the Virginia Area Agencies on Aging—Caring for the Commonwealth (VAAACares).
