U. of Michigan's Whall wins The Gerontological Society of America's 2003 Schwartz Award

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Dr. Ann Whall of the University of Michigan as the 2003 recipient of the Doris Schwartz Gerontological Nursing Award. This distinguished honor, presented by GSA's Clinical Medicine section in collaboration with the John A. Hartford Foundation Institute for Geriatric Nursing, is given to a member of the Society in recognition of outstanding and sustained contribution to geriatric nursing research.

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. Whall is being recognized for her significant impact on both knowledge development and patient care in the field of gerontological nursing. She was one of the first nurses to enter the specialty area of geriatric mental health, combining her psychiatric nursing preparation with her knowledge and skills in geriatric nursing. Early in her career she distinguished herself as one of the leading experts in the recognition of psychiatric problems in the elderly. Whall has worked extensively in theory development and sustained research in the area of aggressive physical behavior in nursing home residents with dementia.

Her contributions to nursing have been recognized nationally and internationally. She recently served as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Belfast in Northern Ireland. She was also elected Gerontological Nurse Researcher of the Year by the Midwest Nursing Research Society. Dr. Whall is a fellow in the American Academy of Nursing and holds GSA fellow status.
