Date:9/29/2011

ring critical stories about what it means to age in America to millions, who are getting too little information about an issue that affects all of us. Families need to know that aging affects every generation in every corner of our society, regardless of language or culture," said Sandy Close, founder and executive editor of NAM.

In Boston, the fellows also will report on new discoveries in aging and participate in a day-long workshop, where experts will discuss the latest research and provide insight on key issues facing older Americans. Travel grants also are being provided to allow last year's fellows to participate in the meeting.

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

The new fellows:

Azadeh Ansari (assignment editor/writer, CNN International, Atlanta, Ga.) will produce a video documentary story with written website postings on the struggles of elderly Iraqi Arab and Christian refugees in America, mainly in Dearborn, MI. She was on the CNN team that earned a 2011 Peabody Award for covering the BP oil spill.

Hanah Cho (reporter/blogger, Baltimore Sun, Baltimore, Md.) will author "Drowning in Debt," a two-part series on the major financial crisis facing older Americans.

Karla Gmez Escamilla (reporter/anchor, Univision Arizona, Tucson, Ariz.) will produce a series of reports on immigration challenges for Latino seniors.

Kerry Hannon (author/columnist/ broadcaster, Forbes and AARP, Washington, D.C.) will produce a series of three articles on work and retirement of the boomer generation.

Kay Harvey (independent journalist, MinnPost, Woodbury, Minn.), a former reporter on aging for the St. Paul Pioneer Press, will write a four-part series on
