Toronto Star reporter named Atkinson fellow

Judy Steed is this year’s Atkinson fellow, winning $100,000 to fund a project entitled, “Aging: The Myths, the New Research, the Hidden Poverty, Transformative Models and Public Policy Innovation.” Steed will travel to Denmark, Sweden, the U.K. and the U.S. as well as within Canada to answer the question: “Where are the best places in the world to grow old, and why?” The award was presented at the Canadian Journalism Foundation’s gala awards event last night.
