Journalism fellows promise in-depth portrayal of aging in a diverse America
Date:9/29/2011

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) and New America Media (NAM) have selected 16 reporters for the MetLife Foundation Journalists in Aging Fellows Program, now in its second year. They represent a wide range of mainstream and ethnic media, from Forbes to Mother Jones and from Univision Arizona to Korea Daily Atlanta.

The fellows will convene during GSA's Annual Scientific Meeting scheduled for November 18 to 22 in Boston and tap into over 500 presentations and 3,500 expert attendees to develop a major aging-focused story or series.

These proposed projects, to be published in 2012, will span such concerns as seniors drowning in debt, the growing number of prisoners aging in solitary confinement, the struggles of Iraqi and Afghan refugees in the U.S., and African American families facing Alzheimer's disease.

"This conference will present a comprehensive look at aging, from lifestyle issues to lifespan research to today's debates over the future of Social Security and Medicare," said GSA Deputy Executive Director Linda Harootyan, MSW. "Our new fellows will serve a vital role by cultivating public awareness of these issues."

The fellowship program funded by a $100,000 grant from the MetLife Foundation comes just as the first of the 78 million American baby boomers reach age 66, when they become eligible for full retirement benefits under Social Security. The nation's older population will almost double to 70 million by 2030, while by mid-century, the number of ethnic elders will grow to four out of 10 Americans age 65 and up.
