The Georgia Health Policy Center (GHPC) presented the inaugural Dr. Glenn Martin Landers Stewardship Award to its namesake, Glenn Landers, Sc.D., in recognition of his foundational and significant contributions to the center.
For nearly 25 years, Glenn Landers served many roles at the Georgia Health Policy Center — researcher, operations extraordinaire, relationship builder, trusted thought partner, and valued leader. He passed away April 19, 2023, following a battle with renal cancer.
He not only helped to build the reputation and success of GHPC, but enhanced the field of public health and directly impacted the lives of Georgians and people around the country. His legacy as a connector of knowledge, translator of complexity, and mentor to all will continue to inspire the work and staff of GHPC in the future.
“The things that stand out to me about Glenn are not just his commitment to excellence in delivering on products and commitments and stewarding resources, but his passion for teaching others, sharing his wisdom, providing mentorship, and leading by example,” says Karen Minyard, CEO of the Georgia Health Policy Center. “This is where he shined as a steward on behalf of GHPC.”
The award will continue to recognize an individual that exemplifies GHPC’s five keys of stewardship:
- Aligning purpose
- Building relationships
- Delivering excellence
- Living the mission
- Self-directing learning

One of Glenn’s great joys was GHPC’s practice of sponsoring families in which grandparents are caring for their grandchildren through the Project Healthy Grandparents program at Georgia State’s Byrdine F. Lewis College of Nursing and Health Professions. If you would like to make a gift in his honor, please click here.
