Maryland's Pearlin to receive GSA's 2004 Distinguished Career Contribution to Gerontology Award

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Dr. Leonard I. Pearlin of the University of Maryland at College Park's Sociology Department to receive its 2004 Award for the Distinguished Career Contribution to Gerontology. This prize is given annually to an individual whose theoretical contributions have helped bring about a new synthesis and perspective or have yielded original and elegant research designs addressing a significant problem in the literature.

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 12:15 p.m. 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.

Dr. Pearlin has made extraordinary contributions to articulating how a social perspective can inform understanding of health and aging. His early research generated several articles that helped to establish social research into stress and health, particularly mental health.

His contributions in the field of social stress research and the life course are now renowned. His early work in the 1960s and 1970s on social and social psychological determinants of mental health set the stage for a series of now classic articles that defined the stress process paradigm.

To be eligible for the Career Contribution Award, papers must have been published within the past five years by a GSA member in the Behavior and Social Sciences section.

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA), founded in 1945, is the oldest and largest national multidisciplinary scientific organization devoted to the advancement of gerontological research. Its membership includes some 5,000+ researchers, educators, practitioners, and other professionals in the field of aging. The Society's pri
