The University of Washington School of Medicine's Dr. Itamar Abrass has been chosen by The Gerontological Society of America to receive its 2003 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 56th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 21st-25th, 2003 in San Diego, California. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among gerontological health care clinical, administrative, and research professionals.
Dr. Abrass is recognized not only for his research accomplishments, but also his excellence in clinical care and teaching. He currently serves as Acting Chief of Medicine at Harborview Medical Center, where he participates actively in the care of geriatric patients. He supervises medical students, residents, and fellows, and has served as a clinical and research mentor to numerous talented fellows and postdoctoral trainees in geriatric medicine.
He is widely published in the area of geriatric endocrinology and pharmacology, and has made important contributions to understanding the effects of aging on beta-adrenergic receptor regulation, and the impact of exercise training on cardiovascular function in elderly people.
