The Illinois Interagency Committee for Employees with Disabilities in October named John Eckert its 2017 Outstanding Employee of the Year.

Eckert, who has a master’s degree in rehabilitation administration and services from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, maintains a primary focus on rebalancing the long-term care system to ensure that individuals with disabilities and the elderly have every opportunity to live independently in their communities.

He has long served as the Department on Aging’s leader for the Federal Money Follows the Person Demonstration Program, a Medicaid improvement project aimed at better serving the elderly and those with disabilities.
