Congratulations to Dr. Holly Dabelko-Schoeny, who has been selected as the Ohio Association of Gerontology and Education’s (OAGE) researcher of the year. This award is given to a researcher whose work has lead to the ”improvement of services for older adults and who has supported the expansion of research in the aging field in Ohio and nationally.” The OAGE Awards Committee was impressed by the breath and depth of Dabelko-Schoeny’s research, especially in adult day care. It felt that her research has made a significant contribution to the field of aging and will help to improve services.
