Congratulations to Dr. Salvatore R. Maddi. His fifty-two year prolific career as a teacher, author, theorist, researcher, and consultant and practitioner earned him a Gold Medal in the area of Lifetime Achievements in Psychology in the Public Interest. His pioneer study at the Illinois Bell Telephone Company opened up a field of health psychology research and practice that came from his seminal work on the hardiness personality.

Dr. Maddi will receive his award in August of 2012 and be a Keynote Speaker at the American Psychological Association Convention in Orlando, Florida.

Thank you Dr. Maddi for your stellar work and contributions to the field of human development.
