Dr Walston plays a leading role in setting the national ageing research agenda through his leadership and participation in committees of the American Geriatrics Society and on study sections and review panels for the National Institute on Aging. He has won numerous awards for his research, including the American Geriatrics Society New Investigator Award, a Brookdale National Leadership Fellowship and Paul Beeson Physician Faculty Scholars recognition.
I regard this book as an essential tool for the practising geriatrician. Twenty-six sections cover the whole breadth of the practice of geriatric medicine and there are many outstanding contributions. The editors have gone for active young contributors and have produced some outstanding chapters. * Jeremy R. Playfer, Age and Aging (Praise for Previous Edition) *
