Wright University's Kapp wins The Gerontological Society of America's 2003 Donald P. Kent Award

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Professor Marshall B. Kapp of the Wright University School of Medicine as the 2003 recipient of the Donald P. Kent Award. This distinguished honor is given annually to a GSA member who best exemplifies the highest standards for professional leadership in gerontology through teaching, service, and interpretation of gerontology to the larger society.

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.

Kapp's curriculum vitae spans 90 pages and represents the multidisciplinary nature of his work. He is a GSA fellow and currently serves as the Vice President of the society's Social Research, Policy and Practice section. He holds degrees from Johns Hopkins University, The George Washington University School of Law, and the Harvard University School of Public Health. He has contributed creatively and credibly in the fields of both gerontology and legal scholarship.

Kapp's work has focused on often-ignored topics where long-term care practices intersect with law and ethics. These areas include guardianship and conservatorship for persons with impaired decision making, physical restraints in nursing homes, legal liability among long-term care providers, and negotiated risk agreements as a possible vehicle for consumer autonomy in long-term care.

Since August 1980, Kapp has been a faculty member in the School of Medicine at Wright State University, where he teaches courses on the legal and ethical aspects of health care. He has served as a consultant to the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment, the Federal Administration on Aging, the American Hospital Association, the Institute of Medicine, and the Retirement Research Foundation.
