Eight-Part Series on Alzheimer's Wins a Gracie Award

The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation announced AARP's entry, "Beyond the Face of Alzheimer's - A Few Good Men," as the winner of the Gracie Award in the Outstanding Lifestyle/Health Program category. The Gracies recognize exemplary programming created for women, by women and about women in all facets of media and entertainment, as well as individuals who have made contributions to the industry.

In the eight-part documentary series, Barbara Kline and Kathy Bernard, cohosts of the 2 Boomer Babes Radio Hour, give voice to the spouses, children and nurses who work day in and day out caring for people with Alzheimer's. The caregivers share their wisdom and lessons learned, with hope that their stories will serve as a guide for families beginning the Alzheimer's journey and provide comfort and support to those already well down the road.

"Winning a Gracie is a huge accomplishment," said Angel Livas, Executive Radio Producer. "It's a testament to the hard work of our team and validates the quality of programming that comes out of AARP's Radio department."

Winners will be presented their statues at the Gracie Awards Luncheon in New York City this June.
