Case Western Reserve University's Noelker to receive GSA's 2005 Distinguished Career award

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Dr. Linda Noelker of Case Western Reserve University's Sociology Department to receive its 2005 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 58th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 18th-22nd, 2005 in Orlando, FL. The actual conferral will occur on Sunday the 20th at 12:15 p.m. at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among clinical, administrative, and research professionals in the field of gerontology.

Noelker's career has advanced the role of research and services to improve the quality of life for older adults and their families. More recently she has focused on workforce issues in residential and community care. This has included intervention studies to increase job retention and job satisfaction among nurse assistants and home health aides who form the backbone of long-term care. She currently serves as editor of The Gerontologist, one of GSA's peer-reviewed periodicals.

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.
