Cynthia Parks, Continuing Education Instructor for the Emeritus Program, is one of 30 outstanding senior volunteers to receive the 2010-11 California Senior Leaders Award sponsored by the California Senior Leaders Program (CSLP) through UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health.
The awards are based on individual contributions to community building or healthy living, and individuals who play a leadership role and have a proven commitment to social justice. Cynthia was one of 30 nominees chosen for this tribute.
Cynthia will become a member of the California Senior Leaders Alliance. A group that works together to advance aging policy issues at a state level. Her participation will give her an opportunity to work on policy issues, and travel to Sacramento to influence legislation.
