The Gerontological Society of America Selects 2018 Fellows

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) - the nation's largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to the field of aging has named 89 exemplary professionals as its newest fellows. Iraida V. Carrion, PhD, in the School of Social Work was selected for the Behavioral and Social Sciences Section. The status of fellow - the highest class of membership within the Society - is an acknowledgment of outstanding and continuing work in gerontology. This recognition can come at varying points in an individual's career and can acknowledge a broad scope of activity. This includes research, teaching, administration, public service, practice, and notable participation within the organization. Fellows are chosen from each of GSA's four membership sections. The new fellows will be formally recognized during GSA's 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 14 to 18 in Boston, Massachusetts.
