Larry Minnix spent more than three decades as a national leader and advocate for better elder services, including patient-centered care.
For 15 years, he served as president and CEO of LeadingAge, formerly the Association of American Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA). Recent work in that role included collaboration with the federal government’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on its proposed rule overhauling nursing home requirements.
Before joining AAHSA, Minnix worked for 28 years at Wesley Woods, an elder services agency in Atlanta where he started as an intern and ended as CEO. In a recent interview, he encouraged upcoming leaders to “advocate for the right policy for the right reasons and don’t be afraid to speak up about them.”
