Duke University's Cohen wins The Gerontological Society of America's 2004 Donald P. Kent Award

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Dr. Harvey Jay Cohen of the Duke University Medical Center as the 2004 recipient of the Donald P. Kent Award. This distinguished honor is given annually to a GSA member who best exemplifies the highest standards for professional leadership in gerontology through teaching, service, and interpretation of gerontology to the larger society.

The award presentation will take place at GSA's 57th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 19th-23rd, 2004 in Washington, DC. The actual conferral will occur on Saturday the 20th at 12:15 p.m. in Salon 1-M of the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among gerontological health care clinical, administrative, and research professionals.

Dr. Cohen was the originator of Duke University's Geriatrics Fellowship and directed it for over 20 years. Most of the graduates of this program have gone on to academic careers in geriatric medicine and are now well-known in the field. At GSA, he has served as President, Chair of the Clinical Medicine Section, a member of the Public Policy Committee, and the Publication Committee.

Cohen is also a previous winner of GSA's Joseph T. Freeman Award. His popular book, Taking Care After 50: A Self-Care Guide for Seniors is but one example of his successful interpretation of science and geriatric medicine for older people and their families.

He has also served a number of agencies that support gerontological research and geriatric education. He has served on the boards of both the Hartford and Reynolds Foundations' aging programs. He is renowned for his expertise in hematology-oncology and his work in cancer and aging.
