Dr Martin Hyde becomes a fellow of the Gerontology Society of America
3rd July, 2018
Dr Martin Hyde, a member of CADR and Associate Professor at the Centre for Innovative Ageing, has been accepted as one of the newest fellows of the Gerontology Society of America – an acknowledgement of outstanding and continuing work in gerontology.
The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) is the nation’s largest interdisciplinary organisation devoted to the field of aging and has named 89 exemplary professionals as its newest fellows.
The status of fellow is the highest class of membership within the Society, and is an honour not conferred on many academics outside the USA. 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.
“Being accepted as a Fellow of the Gerontological Society of America (GSA) is a great personal and professional honour. I have been an active member of the GSA for over a decade through which I have developed my international research profile. Becoming a Fellow will help to expand my professional networks and promote my work as well as being a way to give back to the Society, by promoting the excellent work it does and, hopefully, mentoring others who are starting their research careers.”
The new fellows will be formally recognised during GSA’s 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 14 to 18 in Boston, Massachusetts.
