MediaWise for Seniors combines two topics I am very passionate about: media literacy and making older Americans’ lives better. I am looking forward to working at that intersection, which is not just important for those who we will be educating, but also crucial for our country, the advancement of Democracy and as we have now learned from this pandemic, it’s critical to keeping Americans healthy and safe.
