Nate Miley, Alameda County District 4 Supervisor, will be honored for his leadership and ongoing commitment to improving the lives of seniors by the Center for Elders’ Independence (CEI), a leading health plan for seniors in the East Bay.
The award will be presented at the center’s 20th Anniversary celebration Friday, May 4, at the Lake Merritt Hotel in Oakland.
Corrine Jan, Chief Executive Officer of Family Bridges, Inc., will also be honored at the event.
The Center for Elders’ Independence provides comprehensive health care and social services that enable East Bay residents age 55+ with multiple medical problems to remain living independently in their homes rather than in nursing home facilities.
“As we reflect on our 20 year history, it’s very clear to us that Supervisor Miley has been one of our organization’s strongest supporters,” said Peter C. Szutu, M.P.H, President and CEO, Center for Elders’ Independence.
In 1986, Miley created the United Seniors of Oakland and Alameda County (USOAC), an organization that empowers older adults to improve their quality of life. He served as the USOAC executive director for more than 20 years and was elected president of the board in 2010.
“When you’re an elected official, you do the work for the people you serve…not for awards. But when you receive an honor like this, it’s extremely gratifying,” Miley said.
CEI operates three PACE centers in Oakland and one in Berkeley, serving frail seniors from El Sobrante and Richmond to Hayward. For information visit www.cei.elders.org or call (510) 433-1150.
