GIM Assistant Professor of Medicine, Nicole Depasquale, PhD, is this year's recipient of the ADA Division 20 Springer Early Career Achievement Award. This award is designed to honor an individual whose work has made significant early career contributions to understanding critical issues in the psychology of adult development and aging.
Dr. DePasquale was recognized with this award at the virtual ADA conference on August 14, 2021.
DePasquale's research addresses questions about health, well-being, and multiple role management in the context of middle and late adulthood, with the ultimate aim of informing intervention efforts. Earlier this year, she received a K01 Career Development Award from NIA to fund her research project, “Supporting Patients and Care Partners to Manage Chronic Kidney Disease Together.” Her K01 research will examine ways in which older adult-family care partner dyads manage CKD together and the impact dyadic management has on their health as individuals and as a whole.
