Bill Chopik Awarded Gerontological Society of America Award

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA), the nation's leading interdisciplinary organization devoted to the field of aging, has named Bill Chopik among the outstanding award winners for the year, in recognition of his research on gratitude, aging and whether cultural experiences come into play.

The Richard Kalish Innovative Publication Award was awarded to Chopik for the article, "Grateful expectations: Cultural differences in the curvilinear association between age and gratitude." The award recognized insightful and innovative publications on aging and life course development in the behavioral and social sciences.

According to the announcement of its 2022 award winners from GSA, 

GSA salutes outstanding research, recognizes distinguished leadership in teaching and service, and fosters new ideas through a host of awards. Nominated by their peers, the recipients' achievements serve as milestones in the history and development of gerontology.

The award presentations will take place at GSA's 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 2 to 6 in Indianapolis, Indiana. This conference is organized to foster interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers, educators, and practitioners who specialize in the study of the aging process.
