Menorah Park's Campus News Magazine Wins Distinguished 2018 APEX AWARD FOR PUBLICATION EXCELLENCE

Menorah Park Campus News Magazine

Wins 2018 Distinguished APEX Award for Publication Excellence

{Beachwood, OH} Menorah Park’s Campus News Magazine has won the distinguished 2018 APEX AWARD for PUBLICATION EXCELLENCE for facing ‘age-ism’ head on in articles and ads.

The submitted issue featured Menorah Park’s R.H. Myers resident Jane Friedman on the cover looking into the mirror, withtagline, “Who’s That Gal in the Mirror—Aging with Humor.” Friedman’s story was the perfect cover story, and readers learned how she ages with grace, and humor through song and laughter, and a light-hearted understanding that we all get older, but being old is an attitude. She was first noticed by media when she appeared in a YouTube video, which now has more than 133,000 views, singing her hilarious song about the aging body to the tune of “I Feel Pretty”. Friedman’s story has now appeared in the ICAA International Active Aging Journal, the Association of Jewish Services e-letter, on local television, newspapers, and in magazines. She is a testament to the culture of healthy aging on the Menorah Park Campus. You can view the video by Googling Jane Friedman Menorah Park.

Other articles outlining examples of how Menorah Park faces age-ism head-on include one by Menorah Park CEO Jim Newbrough that drives home that fact that ‘Age is personal, not chronological.” While yet another article demonstrates how a don’t-quit attitude helped a stroke survivor get back to his art. He was so inspired; he recently took on publishing a book, which comes out soon.

Strengthening the mind, volunteering, and participating in what you are passionate about were also topics in the issue, with a thankful letter from a resident who was given a ‘voice’ to express her opinion through advocacy efforts lead by Menorah Park, all while receiving excellent care. “My Challenges Don’t Define Me” she states with a hand-held sign in the photo. She was interviewed by local media after it was noted that a letter that she wrote and sealed with a lipstick kiss kicked off a rally. The rally advocated saving Medicare from drastic cuts and more than 4,000 signed letters were sent to politicians from people all over the U.S.

Even the ads in the magazine laud those who make the most of Menorah Park’s Excellence in Caring with creative and energized photos of aging at its best.

It is in the past decade that the Menorah Park Campus News found its true calling, to be more than listings of activities and programs, but to be an advocate for issues surrounding all of us as we age, to be a beacon of hope for those who have no one to turn to for healing, health and services information, and to ensure that our community understands the importance of proceeding through the years with the very best resources one could hope for literally at their fingertips.

The Menorah Park Campus News Magazine has a circulation of approximately 12,000,and is sent to a mailing list of community members, physicians, family members, and advocates of healthy and happy aging. Anyone wishing to receive the publication may email sgavanditti@menorahpark.org, or go to www.MenorahPark.org and sign up for the electronic version.
