Al Berger Community Service in Aging Award

Al Berger Community Service in Aging Award

The Al Berger Community Service in Aging Award remembers a former President of the Board of Directors of the Society. Al Berger was a past president of The Society who volunteered many hours to lead the long term care insurance initiative to protect individuals who were placed in long term care facilities as well as quality of life efforts following the passage of OBRA in 1987.

The Society remembers his efforts by recognizing individuals who have made significant community service efforts for Colorado seniors. Each year the Board of Directors bestows the Al Berger Community Service in Aging Award

Past recipients have included Gene Bloom, Cody Dental Group & Tammie Rigby, Life Care Centers of America (2013), Josh Freiberg, Red Rocks Family Dentistry (2014), Hearing Rehab Center (2015), and Mike and Ann Drake, community volunteers (2016), Elaine Allemang, Karey Bradley, Forney Museum of Transportation, and United HealthCare Volunteers (2017), and Nicholas C. Peterson, Matthew Carlston, DDS; Jeanette Hensley (2018) and Reynaldo Mireles, Steven J. Zapien, DDS, Janet Weipert, and Bernard Buckley, 2019.

In 2020 The Society is pleased to present the Al Berger Community Service in Aging Award to Julie Raney.

Julie Raney is a certified and licensed audiologist.  She has worked as a clinical audiologist in Colorado since 2005.  In 2012 she opened her own practice, New Leaf Hearing Clinic Inc. with the goal of serving the community with quality hearing care.  Recently, Julie has joined with five fellow audiologists to reach farther into the community through a new charity called, Hearing the Call-Colorado. Through this charity they are able to provide hearing care to low income Coloradans who would not otherwise be able to obtain audiological care“. In addition, Julie frequently provides discounted and sometimes free audiology services to clients of The Society.
