Dr. Bill Thomas was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the state of Maryland at the annual Governor’s Leadership in Aging Awards ceremony May 10 for his pioneering work as founder of The Green House Project and Eden Alternative philosophy.
 
Maryland has reason to celebrate Dr. Thomas’ contributions to culture change as the state’s first Green House Project homes are currently under construction by GEDCO at Stadium Place in Baltimore.
Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and Secretary of Aging Gloria Lawlah also recognized outstanding contributions made by older Marylanders, and groups or organizations that serve them with awards for the visual and performing arts, health and advocacy.
The Green House Project and NCB Capital Impact were proud to sponsor the Governor’s Leadership in Aging Awards. Learn more about the other award recipients at Dr. Thomas’ blog ChangingAging.org and enjoy this video of the event by ChangingAging Editor Kavan Peterson:
