Barb Genton – SAGE Upstate

Barb has encouraged countless of older adults to live their most genuine lives, as a breast cancer survivor and an advocate for the LGBTQ community. Her work as a leader and volunteer for SAGE Upstate, an organization that promotes the well-being of older gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people and allies in Central New York, has allowed the group to expand from one small office to their current location where it holds as many as 30 programs each month. Barb also has been an active volunteer with the Susan G. Komen Foundation, since before her own diagnosis.
