UACOA hires new Village Services Coordinator

The Upper Arlington Commission on Aging (UACOA) is excited to announce that we have hired a new Village Services Coordinator for UA Village.  Cecilia Glancy will be joining the team May 13, 2024.

Cecilia comes to us with an educational background in Health Science and Aging.  She sat on the Student Advisory Board for the Office of Geriatrics and Gerontology at The Ohio State University.

As the point person for UA Village, Cecilia will be sharing the opportunity for membership and volunteer growth and engagement, helping to connect member needs with volunteers, and developing programming and social opportunities.
