Each year at our Annual Wisdom Steps Conference we award the “Dr. Alan Allery Wisdom Steps Preventive Health Award.”
Dr. Allery was the first director of the National Resource Center on Native American Aging, which was started in 1994. He was very instrumental in the development of Wisdom Steps. Dr. Allery passed on in 2007 and the following year Wisdom Steps developed this award in his honor. In 2008, the first award was dedicated to Dr. Allery and received by his family. Each year, Wisdom Steps gives this prestigious award to honor one person in Minnesota who has exemplified good preventive health.
