South Florida's Small wins The Gerontological Society of America's 2004 Margret M. Baltes Award

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Dr. Brent Small of the University of South Florida's School of Aging Studies as the 2004 recipient of the Margret M. Baltes Early Career Award in Behavioral and Social Gerontology. This distinguished honor, given annually, recognizes outstanding early career contributions in behavioral and social gerontology.

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 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. Small has been instrumental in the rapidly emerging research area of behavioral and cognitive aspects of the preclinical phase of Alzheimer's Disease. Beginning in 2000, he has published a programmatic set of empirical variables in which he shows the gradual and remarkably lengthy period of cognitive decline occurring prior to diagnosis of AD. In the nine years since receiving his PhD, he has established himself as an independent investigator and a leading figure conducting social/behavioral research on aging.

The Baltes award is given to a person from any discipline in the social sciences. Only individuals who have received their doctorate within the last ten years are eligible. The winner traditionally presents a lecture at the Annual Scientific Meeting the following year. The award is given by GSA in conjunction with the Baltes Foundation.
