Weekly Radio Program Aims to Help Listeners

People are looking to increase their quality of life during both their working years and in retirement. The Transamerica Center for Health Studies (TCHS) educates Americans about issues related to their longer-term health and well-being since good health is the vital component to a person’s productivity and enjoyment throughout life. At the same time, Americans are living longer than at any time in history, and yet extensive research conducted by the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies (TCRS) indicates that Americans are ill-prepared for long-term retirement and unaware of their need for action, as well as the range of practical steps available to them to begin planning for their financial security.

To assist listeners in their quest for both health and financial security, WYPR produces a weekly evening drive-time segment, “ClearPath – Your Roadmap to Health & Wealth,” which airs on Mondays during NPR’s popular All Things Considered. The new program is underwritten by the Transamerica Institute, as part of its mission to identify, research and educate the public about retirement, health coverage, and other relevant financial issues facing Americans today. 

Program host Al Waller will engage Catherine Collinson, the Transamerica Institute’s founding president who also leads TCRS (a foremost expert on the state of retirement readiness in America), and Christopher Wells, national program manager of Transamerica Institute’s TCHS, on the broad range of issues related to financial literacy, retirement, health care, and well-being.
