JOURNAL OF GERONTOLOGY & GERIATRICS EDUCATION
The official journal of the
Association for Gerontology in Higher Education
The Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE), the educational unit of The Gerontological Society of America, has chosen Gerontology & Geriatrics Education™ as its official journal. With Volume 26, this quarterly journal joined forces with AGHE to improve awareness of best practices and resources for gerontologists and gerontology and geriatrics educators.
Some AGHE members joined the journal’s already distinguished editorial board. Editor-in-Chief Dr. Judith L. Howe's leadership provides superior exploration and discussion of research results, observations, evaluations, theoretical discussions, and recommendations related to gerontology and geriatric course work, practice placements, and curriculum design and implementation. AGHE and the journal work together to serve the needs of those who educate, train, or work with elderly adults. AGHE encourages member organizations to subscribe to this important journal.
Beginning with Volume 26 of Gerontology & Geriatrics Education, an AGHE committee makes a decision as to who will receive a “Best Paper of the Volume” award. Designated as the David A. Peterson Award, the author of the year's most outstanding paper receives $1,000 and an accompanying framed certificate. There is also a paper which receives an Honorable Mention.

Howe, PhD, is a Professor of the Department of Geriatrics & Preventive Medicine at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Director of the New York Consortium of Geriatric Education Centers, Associate Director/Education & Evaluation, VISN 3 GRECC at James J.
