Previous winners of this prestigious award were Jennie Chin Hansen, PhD (On Lok) in 2002 and Stephen McConnell, PhD (Alzheimer's Association) in 2003.

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 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.
