The APA has recognized four very deserving people for the incredible work they do in our community. The 2023 APA Award Winners are:

Outstanding Leader, Elizabeth Bangel-Stehlin

Outstanding Service Provider, Suzanne Piper-Baird

Outstanding Project: Creative Connections in Collaboration with Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio, Kristin Cooley (Creative Connections); Angie Homoelle (Catholic Charities)

This is the third of a series of profiles to feature the winners. Read on to learn more about our Outstanding Leader – Elizabeth (Liz) Bangel-Stehlin.

The reasons Elizabeth (Liz) Bangel-Stehlin highly deserves the APA Outstanding Leader award are many, but here are a few:

First, Liz is very involved with the local chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. She was invited to represent the organization at the Community Leadership Summit in New Orleans in January and served as Vice Chair for their Spring Gala, Era of Hope, held May 16 at Music Hall.

Second, along with her partners Ali Puckett and Rachel Hodesh, she leads a non-profit called SAAG (Senior Advocate Action Group) which helps to provide many items to lower income older adults. With her leadership, SAAG has extended their Blessing Boxes locations from the East side to the West side of Cincinnati.

Third, Liz is very involved with Meals on Wheels and is a major player raising funds for them and supporting their organization. As a matter of fact, she  danced in front of hundreds at the Dance Our Heart Out in November to raise funds for Meals on Wheels of Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky.

And this is just a slice of what she’s involved in.  It’s no wonder she’s an award winner!
