NAPCA C.E.O. to Receive Award from NHCOA
National Hispanic Council on Aging to Honor Clayton Fong‘s Commitment to Seniors
The National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA) has announced it plans to honor National Asian Pacific Center on Aging (NAPCA) C.E.O. Clayton Fong with The President’s Award, at their annual conference this November.
“This is a wonderful honor that Mr. Fong is proud to accept,” said NAPCA Communications Director Derek Wing. “It shows that both he and NAPCA are committed to helping seniors from all walks of life, regardless of race or ethnicity. We are happy that NHCOA recognizes the tireless contributions Mr. Fong has made to the aging community, with this prestigious award.”
The President’s Award is given to an individual, group or company that has demonstrated a strong commitment to supporting policy programs valuable to older adults. Mr. Fong’s dedication to older Americans is also evident in his work as a member of the board of directors of ITNAmerica, a national nonprofit providing dignified transportation to seniors and people with visual impairments.
NAPCA is a national non-profit organization based in Seattle. Its mission is to serve as the leading national advocacy organization to preserve the dignity, well-being and quality of life of Asian Pacific Americans in their senior years, educate APA seniors and the general public on the unique needs of the APA aging community and empower APA seniors and the aging network to meet the increasing challenges facing the APA aging community.
