Loeb recognized as Fellow in Gerontological Society of America

Susan J. Loeb, associate professor of nursing at Penn State, has been awarded Fellow status in the Gerontological Society of America (GSA), the highest class of membership within the society.

Loeb was recognized for her achievement at a luncheon Nov. 22 during the society’s 66th annual Scientific Meeting in New Orleans.

GSA is the nation’s oldest and largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to research, education, and practice in the field of aging. Fellow status is awarded to acknowledge outstanding and continuing work in gerontology, including research, teaching, administration, public service and practice.

Loeb is affiliated with GSA’s Health Sciences section. Her contribution to the field of gerontology includes serving as principal investigator for studies supported by two of the National Institutes of Health — the National Institute on Aging and the National Institute of Nursing Research — as well as her publications in nursing and interdisciplinary journals. Her research on older adults has yielded 37 peer-reviewed journal publications, three editorials, five invited articles on elders in long-term care, a book chapter and a resource manual for older adults.

Loeb holds a doctorate in nursing from Penn State with a minor in gerontology. She joined the Penn State nursing faculty in 2004.
