The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) the nation's largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to the field of aging has chosen Eileen M.

This distinguished honor, presented by GSA's Health Sciences Section in collaboration with the John A. Hartford Foundation's 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 65th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 20 to 24 in New Orleans. This conference is organized to foster interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers, educators, and practitioners who specialize in the study of the aging process.

For much of her career, she was affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, where she served as a professor of scholarly practice, the associate dean for practice & community affairs, and Shearer Endowed Term Chair for Healthy Community Practices. There Sullivan-Marx led and integrated the award-winning practice and community mission that included the school's Program of All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly (PACE), its Living Independently For Elders (LIFE) program, the Healthy in Philadelphia Initiative, Penn Nursing Consultation Service, the Penn Council of Nurses, and the Center for Professional Development.
