IPA Distinguished Service Awards

Every two years during each IPA Congress, IPA recognizes those who have provided extraordinary service and contributions to geriatric mental health in three distinct categories: the field of psychogeriatrics, Congress host country, and the IPA organization. For IPA, there is no greater honor. For this reason, the IPA Board of Directors submits the nominations and makes the selection, with one exception – service to host country. For this award, the IPA Board of Directors generally solicits nominations from key figures within the Congress host country. The Congress host country award represents IPA’s ongoing commitment to the development of psychogeriatrics around the world. This award is viewed as yet another opportunity to recognize and enhance care in a particular country or region.
