Cheryl is also producer and host of a television version of AGING MATTERS. Begun in September 2018, the television program offers interviews with aging experts and demonstrations of how aging related subjects can benefit older adults’ lives. A series of programs called “Stories of Life” features accounts given by older adults about how their lives made a difference to them and their community.


AGING MATTERS TV programs are available on YouTube.

Before AGING MATTERS, Cheryl partnered with an elder mediation attorney to create Talking About the Tough Stuff, interactive dramatizations and commentary for families needing to have difficult conversations about aging issues.
