GSA confers 2004 Richard Kalish Innovative Publication Award to W. Ontario's Connidis and McMullin

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Dr. Ingrid Connidis and Dr. Julie McMullin of the University of Western Ontario's Sociology Department as the 2004 recipients of the Richard Kalish Innovative Publication Award. This distinguished honor recognizes insightful and innovative publications on aging and life course development in the behavioral and social sciences.

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 at 12:15 p.m. on Sunday the 21st in the Balcony A-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.
