Dooley and Gardner named Hartford Doctoral Fellows in geriatric social work

The John A. Hartford Foundation of New York City and The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) have selected two outstanding social work doctoral students for the Hartford Doctoral Fellows Program. The two new Doctoral Fellows are Dennis Dooley at SUNY-Albany and Daniel Gardner at Columbia University. Both Dooley and Gardner will receive a $40,000 dissertation grant plus $20,000 in matching support from their home institutions that will enable them to more fully concentrate on their dissertation research projects over next two-years. Dooley's dissertation examines family perspectives towards pallative care teams for nursing home residents with advanced dementia. Gardner is studying relationships and support among older adult couples living with advanced cancer.

In addition to the dissertation research grants, the Hartford Doctoral Fellows program will provide academic career development and leadership training for these promising doctoral students. Hartford Doctoral Fellows attend the annual meetings of GSA and the Council of Social Work Education where special pre-conference institutes are offered. The Hartford Doctoral Fellows program is designed to cultivate the next generation of geriatric social work faculty who will become teachers, role models, and mentors for future generations of social workers caring for older persons and their families.

It is estimated that there are over 600,000 practicing social workers in the United States. While most social workers report that geriatric knowledge is needed in their professional work, less than 5% of all masters level students in social work, and approximately 7% of doctoral level students specialize in aging. The Hartford Doctoral Fellows Program is a $2.45 million dollar program to ensure that the country will have the necessary pool of trained and skilled geriatric social workers by recruiting, sustaining, and training a cadre of talented doctoral students who will become tomorrow's social w
