McCormack Graduate School’s Edward Miller was recently named a fellow of the Gerontological Society of America (GSA), the nation’s largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to the field of aging. The status of fellow is an acknowledgement of Miller’s outstanding and continuing work in gerontology “research, teaching, administration, public service, practice, and notable participation within the organization.”
Miller, an associate professor of gerontology and fellow at UMass Boston’s Gerontology Institute, earned his PhD in political science and health service organization and policy at the University of Michigan. His fields of expertise include aging and long-term care, telemedicine and e-health, intergovernmental relations, program implementation and evaluation, and Medicaid.
Says Miller, “It is an honor to be named a GSA fellow. My affiliation with GSA has provided me with an important means of staying connected with the broader gerontological community. I look forward to continued involvement with the organization for many years to come."
Miller was selected for the Social Research, Policy, and Practice Section, one of GSA's four membership sections.
All 38 new fellows chosen in 2012 will be recognized during the society’s 65th Annual Scientific Meeting to be held in San Diego this fall.
