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.

For the past four years, this co-venture responsible for more than 200 news stories by 65 alumni to date has largely centered around GSA's Annual Scientific Meeting and in-depth stories proposed by each fellow. In 2014, the addition of a series of regional briefings and telebriefings will keep participating reporters engaged year-round.

The new cohort will consist of 13 fellows. One of them will be supported by the John A. Hartford Foundation, now in its third year of involvement with the program.

"We are very excited to have AARP as our new partner and look forward to the possibilities this brings for growing the program," said GSA Deputy Executive Director Linda Harootyan, MSW. "These fellowships provide an important mechanism for informing journalists about new developments in the field of aging."

The program is co-directed by Harootyan and Paul Kleyman, the senior editor of NAM's ethnic elders newsbeat and national coordinator of the Journalists Network on Generations.

As in previous years, roughly half of the fellows will be selected from general audience media and half from ethnic media outlets that serve communities within the U.S.

"AARP is excited to join the Journalists in Aging Fellows Program as a sponsor and partner," said Jeffrey Davis, AARP's senior vice president of media relations and public outreach. "We see real value in educating journalists on the issues and policies affecting our aging society and look forward to providing unique opportunit
