Lessons learned at the Age Boom Academy

Tips from the Age Boom AcademyTop scientists, academics and other experts spent a week talking about trends in their fields, trying to persuade a dozen journalists from across the country to increase and improve coverage of issues surrounding aging and longevity. Among the issues mentioned: depictions of aging and the aged as "pathetic and dreary;" a lack of attention to recent news about U.S. life expectancy; news agencies' focus on younger audiences; and understanding the science.

An AHCJ member who was there reports on what she learned about those issues and other tips to improve coverage of aging and the elderly.
