The Ithaca College Gerontology Institute is pleased to announce that Lisa A. Kendall, Lecturer in Gerontology, is the recipient of the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE) Part-time/Adjunct Faculty Honor. 

The purpose of this Honor is to recognize the contribution and dedication of part-time and/or adjunct faculty who teach gerontology and/or geriatrics courses. Nominees must demonstrate high quality teaching and long-term commitment to gerontology and/or geriatrics education both in the classroom and beyond.

Gerontology Associate Professor Elizabeth J. Bergman nominated Lisa Kendall for this Honor stating that, “[she] has been an instructor in the Ithaca College Gerontology Institute, teaching one section of Fieldwork in Gerontology each fall and spring semester since the fall of 2011. She brings her vast wealth of professional and clinical experience serving older adults to the mentorship of Ithaca College students, each of whom works one-to-one and in small groups with older adults for nearly 100 hours in the context of this course. Instructor Kendall is keenly attuned and extremely responsive to student needs and she thoughtfully tailors each student’s experience to match their interests and professional goals.”

In addition to her work at Ithaca College, Lisa Kendall is a social work psychotherapist and clinical gerontologist who works with Elders, care partners, and others who live with chronic health and cognitive issues, and supports healing for survivors of trauma and loss. Kendall earned her MSW from Wilkes College, received advanced certification in Clinical Social Work in Gerontology (CSW-G), and is an Educator and Mentor for The Eden Alternative.  She is committed to using person-directed, trauma-informed, and strengths-based approaches to maximize well-being for every member of the care partner team.

Lisa Kendall will be recognized at the 43rd Annual Meeting of the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education in Miami, Florida in March 2017.
