Technology helps seniors live independently. Minnesota Public Radio, December 2005
Silent Guardians. Star Tribune, Minneapolis-St Paul, February 2007
Capitol Hill Briefing Features Technologies That Could Transform the Lives of Seniors. American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, January 2008
