Awards at SBM
In addition to the outstanding research presentations at SBM, the Aging SIG offers the Outstanding Aging Research Award Graduate Student Poster Award. The award is available to student members of the Aging SIG conducting aging related research. This award is designed to stimulate the participation of students conducting aging-related research in SBM and to highlight this work within SBM.
If you are a graduate student conducting aging-related research, you are encouraged to apply for this award. The recipient will be recognized for their scientific contribution to the field of aging and behavioral medicine and will receive a monetary award of $150.00 and a plaque. A brief summary of the recipient's abstract for the 2014 Annual Meeting will also be featured in the Fall 2014 issue of the Aging SIG Newsletter. The submitted abstract can be a poster that was submitted (and accepted) for the SBM annual meeting. The selected student must attend the Aging SIG Business Meeting/Breakfast roundtable at the SBM Annual Meeting to present his/her poster.
