University of Pittsburgh's Martire wins the Gerontological Society of America's 2007 Baltes Award
Date:11/13/2007

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) has chosen Lynn M. Martire of the University of Pittsburgh as the 2007 recipient of the Margret M. & Paul B. Baltes Foundation Award. This distinguished honor, given annually, recognizes outstanding early career contributions in behavioral and social gerontology.

The award presentation will take place at GSA's 60th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 16th - 20th, 2007 in San Francisco, CA. The actual conferral will occur on Monday the 19th at 8:00 a.m. at the Hilton San Francisco. The convention is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among clinical, administrative, and research professionals who specialize in the study of the aging process.

Martire has previously won a dissertation award from GSA's Behavioral Sciences Section in 1997 and the Springer Early Career Achievement Award in Research on Adult Development and Aging from Division 20 of the American Psychological Association. She currently sits on the editorial board for the journal Psychology and Aging.

Her research specifically focuses on the interplay of social roles, stress, and health; dyadic psychosocial interventions for chronically ill elders and their caregivers; and the effects of late-life depression on family members.

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. & Paul B. Baltes Foundation.
