The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) - the nation’s largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to the field of aging – has named 61 exemplary professionals as its newest fellows. Dr. Elsa Strotmeyer
, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at Pitt Public Health, has been named a fellow in the Health 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 67th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 5th -9th in Washington D.C.
