Date:6/9/2009

NEW YORK, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationally-recognized elder care expert Doctor Marion(R) (www.doctormarion.com), author of "Elder Care Made Easier," has received two different accolades in one week, reinforcing her dedication to providing resources and support to millions of people caring for aging parents and loved ones. On May 28, Doctor Marion received the 2009 Lehman College Alumni Achievement Award, presented at the college's 41st commencement ceremonies in Manhattan. Days later, her self-syndicated "Ask Doctor Marion" column series -- published monthly in regional newspapers nationwide -- won a Merit Award from the 18th Annual National Mature Market Media Awards Program.

A 1980 graduate of Lehman College with a Master's in Recreational Therapy, Doctor Marion received the achievement award from Lehman President Ricardo R. Fernandez for her work in the field of elder care. The award signifies her career as a source of pride to the college, and an inspiration to future graduates.

The National Mature Market Media Awards, presented by the Mature Market Resource Center and sponsored by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging and American Custom Publishing Corporation(R), annually recognize the best materials produced for those 50 and older. Doctor Marion self-syndicated her "Ask Doctor Marion" column in a determined effort to bring useful content directly to those who need it most -- reaching nearly seven million readers every month through dozens of senior-focused publications across the country.

"These two honors truly represent the intersection of my wonderful education with my continued life's work," said Doctor Marion. "As a caregiver, I meet hundreds of families searching for help. I hope these awards will reinforce the critical need to reach these people and provide them with the support they so desperately seek."
