Professor and Sonya Ziporkin Gershowitz Chair in Gerontology is one of seven UMB faculty members recognized in 2022.
The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) recognized Barbara Resnick, PhD '96, RN, CRNP, FAAN, FAANP, University of Maryland School of Nursing professor; Sonya Ziporkin Gershowitz Chair in Gerontology; and co-director, Biology and Behavior Across the Lifespan Organized Research Center, with the designation of Distinguished University Professor in May 2022. She is one of seven UMB faculty members recognized this year.
The title of Distinguished University Professor is the highest appointment bestowed on a faculty member at UMB. It is a recognition not just of excellence, but also of impact and significant contribution to the nominee’s field, knowledge, profession, and/or practice. Those recognized with the title have been recognized nationally and internationally for the importance of their scholarly achievements; have a demonstrated breadth of interest through their excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service; and have brought distinction to UMB as a result of those activities.
“Dr. Resnick’s contributions to the multiple missions of the University are substantive and ongoing,” said Jane M. Kirschling, PhD, RN, FAAN, the Bill and Joanne Conway Dean of the University of Maryland School of Nursing. “She is a prolific and highly regarded researcher, whose innovative work has been continually funded by the National Institutes of Health and others, broadly disseminated, and has influenced practice and policy. Through her research and scholarship, teaching and mentoring, and service, she has brought national and international recognition and true distinction to the University.”
