Congratulations to doctoral student Tiffany Washington, the 2010 recipient of UNC’s Gordon H. DeFriese Career Development in Aging Research Award.
Washington will receive a $2,500 stipend that she plans to use to support her dissertation data collection. She is a Carolina Program in Health and Aging Research Predoctoral Fellow at the UNC Institute on Aging.
The UNC Institute on Aging established this award to recognize Dr. DeFriese’s thirty-year distinguished career in the conduct and development of research to improve the quality of lives of older North Carolinians, and especially to his unwavering commitment to developing and supporting the careers of his colleagues. The Institute typically presents two awards each year, one for a junior faculty/staff member and the other for a doctoral student.
