Media telebriefing on new census, NIH status report citing dramatic shifts in US aging

Reporters are invited to take part in a phone-in telebriefing about 65+ in the United States: 2005, a major, new status report on aging published by the U.S. Census Bureau and commissioned by the National Institute on Aging, a component of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
