June 04, 2015

Dr. Joann Montepare, Director of Lasell's RoseMary B. Fuss Center for Research on Aging and Intergenerational Studies and a Professor of Psychology, has been named a fellow by the Gerontological Society of America (GSA). Montepare is one of 58 individuals nationally to receive the honor this year.

The GSA is the nation's largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to the field of aging. A fellow is the highest class of membership within the Society and is an acknowledgment of outstanding and continuing work in gerontology. Fellows are chosen from each of GSA's four membership sections: Behavioral and Social Sciences, Biological Sciences, Health Sciences, and Social Research, Policy, and Practice.

Montepare joins other researchers and academic from universities and colleges nationwide, including Cornell, Johns Hopkins and Florida State University, as a Behavioral and Social Sciences fellow.

The new fellows will be formally recognized during GSA's 68th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 18 to 22 in Orlando, Florida.

This recognition can come at varying points in an individual's career and can acknowledge a broad scope of activity. This includes research, teaching, administration, public service, practice, and notable participation within the organization.
