The California Association for Health Services at Home (CAHSAH) will present State Rep. Mariko Yamada (D-Davis) with the 2011 Legislator of the Year award on Feb. 21.
CAHSAH, a state-wide association representing over 600 agencies providing home care, home health and hospice services, said they chose Yamada because of her leadership in the area of senior and disability rights and protections.
This is the first Legislator of the Year award given by CAHSAH in the past five years.
“I am honored by this acknowledgement from CAHSAH,” Yamada said. “Their organization has been a key partner in advancing our aging and long-term care goals in the State Legislature.”
