Deadline for $10,000 Maxwell A. Pollack Award has been extended!

The deadline for the Maxwell A. Pollack Award has been extended to June 16th! This award recognizes instances of practice informed by research and analysis, research that directly improved policy or practice, and distinction in bridging the worlds of research and practice. Individual(s) who are mid-career and actively engaged in the conception and development of innovative programs that demonstrate excellence in translating research into practical application or policy are eligible for this award.

This award carries a cash prize of $10,000 and covers travel expenses to The Gerontological Society of America's Annual Meeting! Previous winners of this prestigious award were Marc Freedman (Civic Ventures) in 2001 and Jennie Chin Hansen (On Lok) in 2002.

The Maxwell A. Pollack Award was created in memory of Dr. Maxwell A. Pollack, a Northwestern University alumnus for his contributions to geriatrics and gerontology. Nominations for this award must include a nomination form, a current resume or curriculum vitae, and a 2-3 page narrative containing the following: a detailed description of the specific example(s) of bridging practice and research including: a) the policy or practice change that occurred and why the contribution is significant; b) the research upon which the policy or practice change is based; c) the significant contributions of the research to this policy and/or practice; d) the potential impact of this change on the lives of older people: and (e) the broader impact or potential for replication. Self-nominations are acceptable.
