Journalism fellowships will increase media spotlight on aging issues
Date:5/21/2014

The Journalists in Aging Fellows Program, run jointly by The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) and New America Media (NAM) since its launch in 2010, is expanding thanks to new funding support from AARP.

"We see real value in educating journalists on the issues and policies affecting our aging society and look forward to providing unique opportunit
