Religion, Spirituality and Aging Award

The Religion, Spirituality and Aging Award recognizes outstanding individuals, programs and services in religion, spirituality and aging, in an effort to inspire more spiritual exploration in the aging services field. Nominees should be a member of both ASA and FORSA, and they will be evaluated on how long they’ve worked in the field, what contributions they have made to the religious and spiritual needs of older adults in the areas of health, research, education, policy planning, advocacy or congregational activity.

Nominees should be leaders in the field of religion, spirituality and aging, and be able to demonstrate effectiveness in meeting religious and spiritual care needs of elders. Their work should have had an impact locally, state-wide and nationally—even internationally—and they should have spent time passing on their knowledge.

The winner will be featured in the Aging in America Conference program book and in AgeBlog as well as on this page. The award is typically presented during the FORSA program at the ASA annual conference.
