The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) and New America Media (NAM) have selected 18 reporters, "America's Top Reporters on Aging Earn Journalism Fellowships," for the next cohort of the Journalists in Aging Fellows Program.

The Fellowship program is now in its eighth year and selects fellows based on their proposals for an in-depth aging-focused story or series. The projects will be published in late 2017, and span such concerns as disparities in hospice access, mental health treatment issues for African Americans, and isolation of older adults in rural settings.

The fellows program is supported by funding from AARP, The Silver Century Foundation, The Commonwealth Fund, The Retirement Research Foundation, and The John A. Hartford Foundation.
