Aging Insights

 NJFA continues to tape and air new episodes of the Award Winning Program, Aging Insights. Did you know that back in May, NJFA won an award called the JAM Award for Excellence in Senior Programming? With the help of our friends at Piscataway Community TV and the support of our Board and Senior Executive Council we were able to make a show that was both educational and entertaining.

 Recent topics have included, services available at the County Office on Aging, advocacy at the State level, navigating the world of elder care and financial planning for the chronically ill. The show is hosted by both NJFA Executive Director, Grace Egan and Program Manager, Melissa Chalker.

New episodes of Aging Insightsare aired monthly on many municipal and county public access stations. You can also view all of the episode on NJFA’s YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/njfoundationforaging?feature=mhee

The most recent episode which will begin airing on local public access channels in August features NJFA Executive Director Grace Egan speaking with 3 advocates about affordable housing. She is joined by Linda Couch of the National Low Income Housing Coalition, Arnold Cohen of the Housing and Community Development Network of NJ and Curtis Johnson of Diocesan Housing Services Corporation of the Diocese of Camden.
