MSNBC & National Geographic Magazine feature "The Sandwich Generation"

TEM's documentary The Sandwich Generation continues to gain recognition!

The film, which chronicles filmmakers Julie Winokur and Ed Kashi as they struggle to care for Winokur's 82-year-old father, is featured in the November 2008 edition of National Geographic Magazine. In a four-page Photo Journal spread titled Living With Herbie, Julie's husband Ed Kashi (also a longtime National Geographic photographer) provides an intimate look at what it was like for his family to care for his dementia-stricken father-in-law.

MSNBC.com currently features the second-half of The Sandwich Generation in the series Losing Herbie: Dad's slide into dementia. TEM's Executive Director Julie Winokur is also quoted in the companion article Alzheimer's offspring confront their own risk.
