Miriam Kelty
Dr. Miriam Kelty has kept very busy post-retirement - to say the least. The career psychologist and researcher now spends most of her time volunteering - from sitting on various committees and boards, to chairing organizations, teaching ethics, and advocating for older adults. She is also the founder of a consortium of local aging-in-place villages called the Washington Area Villages Exchange. How does she fit it all in? "I'm an excellent scheduler," she joked. And her efforts haven't gone unnoticed. For her consistent and diverse volunteer service, Kelty is one of two county residents being honored with the Neil Potter Path of Achievement Award - one of several awards presented each year by the Montgomery County Volunteer Center. Before retiring in 2007, Kelty, who lives in Bethesda, had spent nearly 40 years at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) where, among other things, she focused on scientific ethics, and was the founder and longtime chair of the NIH Inter-Institute Bioethics Interest Group. While at NIH in the 1980s, Kelty mentored many female colleagues, and formed a year-long mentorship program for minority scientists that became highly competitive. "I played a role in the career development of a number of people," she said proudly. "And I emphasized to them the importance of volunteer service." After retiring, she remained connected to science by serving as an evaluator and judge for the prestigious Regeneron Science Talent Search (previously sponsored by Westinghouse, and then Intel). And she still volunteers as a teacher a NIH on the subject of policy and practice in clinical research. The most fun she's had volunteering? She was a volunteer diver for the Magothy River system restoration project in Anne Arundel County. "We looked at oyster growth and restoration on an artificial reef in the river," she explained. Helping neighbors everywhere After retiring, Kelty was asked by a neighbor to help form a "village" of seniors in their neighborhood. Together, they founded such an association: Bannockburn Neighbors Assisting Neighbors - an "all volunteer intergenerational village," Kelty calls it. But she went further, helping villages active throughout the greater Washington area communicate with each other. The Washington Area Villages Exchange (WAVE) she founded now connects 58 villages. WAVE hosts quarterly discussions, where "people interested in developing villages can learn from each other," she said. Kelty believes the village movement is important. "Villages make people feel more comfortable about staying in their homes. They help build a sense of community," she explained. Kelty also helped write important studies for the Montgomery County Commission on Aging. There she headed the Aging in Place Committee, which prepared reports on ridesharing transportation for seniors as well as the village system. Her findings were later used to develop programs and policies within the county. Today, Kelty continues to sit on several boards and committees, including the program committee of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Montgomery County Aging and Disability's Guardianship Advisory Committee, and the Institutional Review Board of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Somehow, she still finds time for herself. Kelty regularly plays tennis and swims, and she and her husband Ed usher at many of the local theaters. She is also an avid potter. "It was something I always wanted to do," she said, "and I decided once I retired I would have time to do it. Marilyn Simonds and Miriam Kelty will be honored and presented their awards on Monday, April 24 at Imagination Stage in Bethesda, Md.

Kelly's final position at NIH was as associate director of the Institute of Aging, which is where she developed a passion advocating for older adults. But she has long been an advocate for women and minorities.

"If a drug or biotech company is sponsoring the trial, that organisation will have information and people trained to talk with potential participants in their trials," says Dr Miriam Kelty, a former associate director of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Institute on Aging, who continues to advise the NIH on ethical issues in research.
"You can also talk with patient advocacy groups if the trial is associated with a disease for which there is an active group and go online and get substantial information about trials that are registered," she adds via email. (The US NIH maintains a registry of federally and privately supported clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world at clinicaltrials.gov.) "Whether you rely on what your doctor tells you depends on whether or not she is knowledgeable about the particular trial, and/or whether the doctor has a conflict of interest, such as getting paid for enrolling participants in the trial," she explains.
