On July 14, the National Press Foundation announced the 20 journalists selected for their “Living Longer: The New Age for Aging” Journalism Fellowship.
We are happy to report that six of the journalists are from New England:
Renee Cordes | Mainebiz | Maine
Rebecca Knight | Insider | Massachusetts
William J. Kole | The Associated Press | Rhode Island
Alexandra Marvar | Freelance/Being Patient | Massachusetts
Annmarie Timmins | New Hampshire Bulletin | New Hampshire
Lori Valigra | Bangor Daily News | Maine.
The group will go to a three-day September program in Washington, D.C., for training sessions examining the complexities of an increasingly multigenerational workforce. The program is sponsored by AARP and NPF is solely responsible for the content.
They’ll learn how to use data to accurately cover the 50+ age group, explore the impacts of artificial intelligence, intersectionality, and other factors affecting older workers, and glean exclusive insights about federal aging policy in 2022 and beyond.
We wish all of the fellows congratulations on your selection to the program!
