GSA confers 2004 Joseph T. Freeman Award to St. Louis University's Morley

Dr. John Morley of St. Louis University's Division of Geriatric Medicine has been chosen by The Gerontological Society of America to receive its 2004 Joseph T. Freeman Award. This honor, given annually, is a lectureship in geriatrics and is awarded to a prominent physician in the field of aging--both in research and practice--who is a member of the Society's Clinical Medicine section.

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 Sunday the 21st at 3:30 p.m. in the Wilson B-M Room of the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among gerontological health care clinical, administrative, and research professionals.

Dr. Morley's work has been cited over 20,000 times and he is renowned for his contributions to three areas of geriatric medicine: appetite regulation, memory and dementia, and testosterone and andropause.

Morley is the director of the Division of Geriatric Medicine at St. Louis University, which he founded in 1989 and is ranked as one of the top ten geriatric programs in the country. He is the editor of the geriatrics section of www.cyberounds.com and has published 19 books and 919 papers.

The Freeman Award was established in 1977 through a bequest from a patient's estate as a tribute to Dr. Joseph T. Freeman, a leading physician and one of the Society's distinguished members and past presidents. The winner traditionally presents a lecture at the Annual Scientific Meeting the following year.
