Professor Paul Stolee of the School of Public Health and Health Systems was named the latest winner of the Evelyn Shapiro Mentoring Award by the Canadian Association on Gerontology (CAG). Stolee received the award at the Canadian Association on Gerontology Conference in Vancouver on October 20.
"Dr. Stolee has made outstanding contributions to mentoring students and new scholars in our field of gerontology," said CAG's executive director Anthony Lombardo (at right, pictured speaking as Professor Stolee receives his award). "We at the CAG are pleased to join other organizations such as the Ontario Research Rehabilitation Advisory Network and the University of Waterloo which have likewise recognized Dr. Stolee’s achievements in mentoring students in the field of gerontology."
The Evelyn Shapiro Mentoring Award is awarded once every two years to a CAG member who has demonstrated his or her role as a mentor over a substantive period of time, and who is recognized by members of the association as a mentor.
Professor Stolee's research interests include geriatrics, long-term care, home care, health information systems and databases, health outcome measurement, and the integration and use of knowledge and information in practice.
