Our September Speaker is Presenting her Emmy Nominated Documentary Film “The Hidden Hungry”
Diane Lade was among the first reporters at a regional U.S. newspaper to cover aging full time, starting in the mid-1980s. A Sun Sentinel journalist since 1978, she took breaks from the age beat to serve as an assistant city editor, columnist, feature writer and consumer writer. A graduate of the University of Missouri, she has been honored by the American Society on Aging, has received fellowships in aging from AARP and the National Press Foundation, and has been a Pulitzer nominee three times for aging coverage. “The Hidden Hungry,” about food insecurity among older adults, took first place honors from the Society for Features Journalism last year. The project’s 28-minute documentary film was shown at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival and was nominated for a 2016 Emmy award. She has lived in a 1920s Fort Lauderdale home since 1987, along with her husband, David Schwartz.
