Distinguished Mentor in Gerontology Award

Karen Hooker received the Distinguished Mentor in Gerontology Award from the Behavioral and Social Sciences Section of the Gerontological Society of America this past weekend at the Society's 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting.

This is a prestigious award, and recipients are always preeminent leaders in scholarship, teaching and mentoring. Karen's commitment not only to the field of gerontology, but also to the success of Oregon State students and early career professionals was on display at the awards ceremony and throughout the entire duration of the conference.
