About the Program
Ms. Jacoby explores what she calls the age-related myths of the health industry and American culture. She says these myths attempt to convince people that longevity can be bought. Baby Boomers, she says, need to distinguish between "marketing hype" and reality. She talks with AARP's senior editor for state news Sylvia Smith.
