Asa Board of Directors Honors Public Policy Leaders


The American Society on Aging board of directors honored three national leaders on public policy issues at ASA's 2007 Joint Conference with the National Council on Aging in Chicago in March.

Carroll L. Estes, a professor of sociology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), received the ASA Hall of Fame Award, given annually to an older member of the association who, through advocacy and leadership, has enhanced the lives of older adults. The founding director of the Institute for Health and Aging (1979-1998), Estes is also a past chair (1981-1992) of the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, UCSF School of Nursing. In addition, she has served as president of the ASA board and is a past president of the Gerontological Society of America.

Her current research focuses on longterm care, mental health and aging, and Social security and Medicare. A prolific writer and public speaker, Estes has authored and coauthored eight books and written more than 150 scientific articles and book chapters. She most recently authored Social Policy and Aging: A Critical Perspective (Thousand Oaks, Calif.: Sage Publications, 2001) and coedited Health Policy: Crisis Reform in the U.S. Health Care Delivery System (Sudbury, Mass.: Jones and Bartlett, 2004).

Estes currently serves on the board of directors of the National Committee to Preserve Social security and Medicare and cofounded Concerned Scientists in Aging and Students for Social security, two groups working to fight the privatization of entitlement programs for elders and to raise awareness of entitlement issues among college students in the United States. She has also served as a consultant to U.S. Commissioners of Social security and to U.S. Senate and House committees on aging. The Hall of Fame Award is presented with support from Atlantic Philanthropies.
