T. Franklin Williams Research Scholars Award

Each year, this award supported one academic geriatrician conducting research on older adults via sub-specialists of internal medicine. The T. Franklin Williams Award was offered in collaboration with the Association for Subspecialty Professors (ASP), and was supported by a generous grant from the Atlantic Philanthropies. From 2012-2015, it also served as a companion to the National Institute on Aging GEMSSTAR Program.
