In the July–August 2018 Aging Today
posted 07.17.2018

The In Focus Section of the July–August 2018 issue of Aging Today addresses the media and how it covers aging—from Jay Newton-Small’s astute detailing of the evolution of the age beat, to Stacy Smith and Katherine Pieper’s thoughts on how Hollywood might reduce or eliminate ageism in its entertainment content.

Also in this issue, Diane Yentel takes on the Trump Administration’s slashing of low-income housing benefits; Raca Banerjee discusses a lesser-known impact of the opioid epidemic—the under-treatment of pain in patients with advanced illness and-or at the end of life; and Kyle Moore and Teresa Ghilarducci explain why and how older black workers face the highest rates of layoff, and what might happen to this cohort in the next recession.
