Linking Research and Practice: The Fellowship Program in Applied Gerontology
The Gerontological Society of America encourages policymakers and program directors in the field of aging to make policy and program decisions based on applied research. To aid in achieving this goal, the Society conducts the Fellowship Program in Applied Gerontology (FPAG), which places postdoctoral academic gerontologists for 3 months in agencies and organizations that plan or deliver services to older people. The program's history and accomplishments are described and up-dated.
