Follow-up to GSA Preconference

At the GSA preconference, Research that Matters to Employers: Overcoming the Constraints of Later Life Work, we discussed various ways to communicate with employers about their needs for research and our needs to get important and relevant findings to them and their employees.


Kerry Hannon, a best-selling author, columnist and expert on aging and work, who was keynote speaker at the conference, provided the following list of U.S.-based journalists who work the aging "beat" and would be interested in receiving abstracts or brief summaries of work that should be made available more broadly than in our usual journal articles.
