Dr. Kristina M. Hash Selected for the Hartford Partnership Program for Aging Education Outstanding Faculty Award

Dr. Kristina M. Hash, a 2001 PhD alumna, has been selected for the Hartford Partnership Program for Aging Education Outstanding Faculty Award. This is a national award honored through The New York Academy of Medicine’s Social Work Leadership Institute and the Council for Social Work Education, and is a clear acknowledgment of her exceptional leadership in the field of aging. We are told that, among other notable achievements, the selection committee was impressed with the level of support and mentorship provided to her students as they work to become driving forces for committed geriatric social workers, as well as her focus on geriatric competencies related to social work leadership in small towns and rural areas. The selection committee noted Kris’ dedication to the field of aging and the development of aging focused programs she has successfully launched, plus a statewide HPPAE consortium (known as the Mountain State Partnership Program) she helped to build. Note the The HPPAE Award Ceremony will take place at the CSWE conference in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday, October 28th, 6.30pm to 8.30pm, at the Marriott Atlanta Marquis, Imperial Ballroom A.
