Assistant Professor of Gerontology Pamela Nadash was awarded fellow status by the Gerontological Society of America (GSA), the nation's oldest and largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to research, education, and practice in the field of aging. Nadash's fellowship was unanimously approved by the GSA Council after review and recommendations by the GSA Fellowship Committee for her outstanding and continuing work in the field of gerontology. She will be honored at the GSA's annual scientific meeting in November.
"Fellowship status is conferred after a rigorous evaluation by a panel of senior gerontologists and the competition is stiff," says Gerontology Department Chair Jeffrey Burr. "Professor Nadash’s appointment as a fellow in the Gerontological Society of America is a great honor and her department colleagues share in my observation that this is well-deserved recognition of her research and service to the GSA. Congratulations, Pam!”
