The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) will
honor William R. Hazzard, M.D., gerontology and geriatric medicine, with the
prestigious Nascher/Manning Award at its Annual Scientific Meeting, to be held
May 19-21 in Long Beach, California.
AGS is recognizing Hazzard as a pioneer in
geriatric medicine in the United States who has constantly advocated for public
and private funding, which forms the bedrock of support for geriatrics
training, research, and superior care of aging adults.
