Raising the Roof: The American Housing Crisis and Our Longer Lives

This generation and the ones to follow it will live very long lives.
​But where? And how well? And most importantly, how does our access to different housing options affect our health as we age?

The Columbia Aging Center’s signature media training was founded by globally recognized geriatric pioneer Robert N. Butler, MD, and prize-winning New York Times editor and writer Jack Rosenthal as an intensive, high-impact training seminar for journalists, editors and producers in all media  – print, on air and online – to deepen understanding of the health, economic and social issues around aging.

​Run in partnership with the Columbia Journalism School, the 2023 Age Boom Academy will cover the topic of America's Housing Crisis and Our Longer Lives.

If you are an on-staff or freelance journalist, you may apply to become a Fellow in this fellowship program co-led by Linda P. Fried, MD, MPH, Dean, Columbia Mailman School of Public Health; and Bruce Shapiro, Columbia Journalism School. Selected Fellows will convene with researchers for an intensive, multi-session, online workshop focused on America's housing crisis and specifically its impact on an aging population. The fellowship will take place in October 2023.

Applications are due July 21, 2023.
