Fellowship allows diverse reporters to cultivate public awareness of aging issues
Date:10/13/2010

://www.metlife.com/about/corporate-profile/citizenship/metlife-foundation">MetLife Foundation comes just as the first of the 78 million baby boomers prepare to turn age 65 on January 1, 2011. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the nation's older population will almost double to 70 million by 2030. Also, the proportion of ethnic elders will double to 40 percent of America's population aged 65 and over by 2050.

"The tremendous volume of quality research at our conference can help journalists get ahead of the information curve on any trend in aging," said GSA Deputy Executive Director Linda Harootyan, MSW. "This fellowship will enable participating news organizations despite severe newsroom budget cuts for many to bring their audiences cutting-edge findings by the top experts on this vital subject area."

Harootyan will co-direct the project with Paul Kleyman, the senior editor of NAM's ethnic elders newsbeat. Kleyman is also founder and national coordinator of the Journalists Network on Generations, which includes more than 1,000 writers on aging.

The 2010 fellows:

Sally Abrahms, a freelance writer working with AARP Bulletin, will open the doors on innovative housing options for seniors in three articles on intergenerational co-housing; small, residential "Green Houses" aimed at radically transforming institutional care for frail elders; and innovative intergenerational nursing homes.

Jane Adler, a freelance writer working with the Chicago Tribune, will explore how age-friendly communities can combat loneliness and depression in our aging nation as long-time friends leave the neighborhood or die, adult children move far away, and frailty takes its physical toll on one's mobility.
