Corbett to Nominate Brian Duke Secretary of Aging
February 3, 2011

Governor Tom Corbett announced that he will nominate Mr. Brian Duke as secretary of Aging.  Duke is currently the director of the Bucks County Area Agency on Aging where he oversees more than 20 programs helping older adults remain as independent as possible, an annual budget of $12 million, and a network of neighborhood centers to promote the well-being of older adults. As part of his position, Duke also advocates with local, state, and federal legislatures on the formation of policy and legislation.

Before taking his position in Bucks County, Duke was executive director for the New Jersey Foundation for Aging, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for older adults throughout New Jersey. Prior to that, he served as a consultant working with the US Administration on Aging and the AARP Foundation in the development of statewide caregiving coalitions in 12 states. He also co-chaired the Caring Community, a coalition of over 100 organizations convened by WHYY, the public broadcaster serving the greater Philadelphia region.
