of the Debra J. Mayberry Inspiration Award

2012:  Annemarie Groth-Juncker - retired clinical associated professor of medicine and geriatrics.

Annemarie Groth-Juncker of Pittsford spent much of her career working with older adults. She was instrumental in securing the rights of nursing home residents to set their own advance directives, and she has been a staunch advocate of home care. Dr. Groth-Juncker has for many years also taught tai chi, a practice that she says has helped keep many seniors strong and independent.

2011: Barbara Bruce - educator, successful aging facilitator.

Barbara Bruce has a passion for teaching and learning, and the concepts of a health brain and holistic approaches to living are of prime importance to her. “Aging well is a life-long journey and can begin at any time for any person,” she says. Bruce conducts workshops and retreats to help individuals focus on holistic living and maintaining a healthy brain.
