Aging in the 21st Century

10/16/09 - 10/17/09     Miami, FL

Over the next 20 years, the 65-plus population is projected to grow four to six times as fast as the population as a whole. Learn what the hot-button issues in our aging society will be and what you need to be reporting on now. Come explore these issues and more so you can start telling these stories now.

Even journalists who don't regularly report on health and aging will benefit from this workshop. The panels will be relevant to a number of other beats, including business, local government and politics, social services and crime. 

The workshop was at the University of Miami School of Communication.
