Move Baby, Move!
A Unique Experience in Health and Wellness
October 30, 2008 It is my privilege to submit a letter of recommendation on behalf of Aaron Palmer, and strongly support his application to New Ventures in Leadership. I understand that you are selecting individuals who have leadership potential within the areas of health and wellness, and civic engagement. I consider Mr. Palmer a strong leader - and a visionary - in health and wellness programming. It has been my joy to work with Mr. Palmer for the past few years, in his capacity as principal of Move Baby, Move!, and in my capacity as a recent convert to health promotion and evidence-based disease prevention programs. I believe we share a common mission of engaging older adults in activity that improves and maintains health (both physical and mental), and thus enhances quality of life. Mr. Palmer has demonstrated expertise in developing and implementing personalized activity programs for older adults that are responsive to individual needs, and appropriate for those at all levels of ability. He has made inroads in reaching minority elders - a particular interest of ours, given the targeting criteria of the Older Americans Act, and in employing a holistic approach. I'm impressed with Mr. Palmer because he has excellent clinical skills and a much broader vision of how medical and social programs can, and should, be integrated at the national level. He's a tireless advocate for health and wellness programs who is willing and able to break new ground. Sincerely, Doni Van Ryswyk Manager of Aging Programs President of Texas Association of Area Agencies on Aging
