The show will follow in the tradition of Aging Today, a program that has aired in Middlesex County for five years with more than 40,000 viewers. Aging Insights will make information about aging issues available to public access viewers and will widen the audience.  Grace Egan, Executive Director of the Foundation noted, “we are pleased to step into this opportunity and follow the lead of Aging Today.  The new show will be titled Aging Insights and will offer resources for boomers, caregivers and seniors while widening the viewership to other counties”.
