National Public Radio’s journeyman reporter Ina Jaffe has a new job. As of Wednesday, July 11, 2012 Jaffe will be covering the newly created aging beat for NPR. According to an NPR spokesman, “In this new role, Ina will cover all aspects of aging: from finances and work life, to health care, relationships and the broader demographic realities facing the country.” With the baby boomers getting older, Jaffe will not be at a loss for stories to cover.


What are the issues important to aging Americans? What stories would you like Ina to cover in her new position?
