Starting in May 2012, public television begins a new focus on Life Part 2 with the launch of Next Avenue, a new website designed to provide the in-depth information, perspective and inspiration Americans need to plan for and live their best life after age 50. And now is your chance to take an active role behind-the-scenes, helping us to shape and refine the site. About once every month we'll ask you to answer questions, tell us what you think or perform tasks on the site through a survey. Together, we'll build a resource as important and relevant as the population of 50+ Americans it is intended to serve.
