GREENWICH, CT (Dec. 14, 2022) – Greenwich Hospital’s Roni Lang, LCSW, was named 2022 Connecticut Social Worker of the Year by the National Association of Social Workers, Connecticut Chapter, for her dedication to eldercare services for patients and caregivers.

A clinical social worker for 50 years, Lang has provided therapy for older adults and their families for nearly two decades at Greenwich Hospital. She was recently appointed to the City of Stamford Mayor’s Advisory Council on Aging

“I genuinely enjoy improving the lives of those I treat,” said Lang, adding that she was honored to receive the award. “Even at age 90, people can change for the better, appreciate the lives they have lived and develop a zest for living. There is nothing contradictory about embracing the aging process with grace, humor and knowledge.”

“Roni is a gifted and compassionate clinician, a consummate professional. She has the ability to be fully present with her patients, regardless of the weight and depth of the problem,” said Joshua Hrabosky, PsyD, program director, Outpatient Behavioral Health.

Although Lang began her career working with children and adolescents, she shifted to assisting older adults, earning post-graduate certificates in geriatric mental health and gerontology. She recently completed a program on Advanced Concepts in an Aging Society sponsored by the University of Southern California School of Gerontology and the American Society on Aging.

Lang has been an adjunct instructor at UCONN Stamford for 20 years, teaching undergraduate classes on aging. She also serves on the board of several organizations that provide support to older adults. Lang received the award during a virtual ceremony on Nov. 15.
