The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) is the nation's oldest and largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to research, education, and practice in the field of aging. The principal mission of the Society—and its 5,500+ members—is to advance the study of aging and disseminate information among scientists, decision makers, and the general public. Founded in 1945, GSA is the driving force behind advancing innovation in aging, both domestically and internationally. Its members come from more than 50 countries.
Fellowship, the highest class of membership within the GSA, is an acknowledgment of outstanding and continuing work in the field of gerontology. Fellows may be honored for a broad scope of activity, including research, teaching, administration, public service, practice, and notable participation within the society.
