University of Western Ontario's McMullin wins GSA's 2006 Margret M. Baltes Award

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Julie McMullin of the University of Western Ontario as the 2006 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 59th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 16th-20th, 2006 in Dallas, TX. The actual conferral will occur on Saturday the 18th at 10:30 a.m. at the Adam's Mark Dallas Hotel. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among clinical, administrative, and research professionals who specialize in the study of the aging process.

A winner of Canada's 2004 Premier's Research Excellence Award, McMullin is an internationally recognized scholar in the area of aging and the life course. Her reputation is demonstrated by her repeated invitations to present her research in Canada, Australia, the U.S., and Germany. She was also awarded a visiting professorship at the University of Bremen (Germany) in 1999.

Over the past ten years, McMullin is the author of three refereed books and monographs, two dozen journal articles and book chapters, and has given over 50 presentations at professional meetings. Her article, "Sociological Ambivalence and Family Ties: A Critical Perspective" (co-authored with Ingrid Arnet Connidis), won GSA's Richard Kalish Innovative Publication Award in 2004.

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 Margret M. Baltes Foundation.
