Speaker(s): Samara Scheckler

A hidden network of caregiving enables many Americans to live safely in their homes. In this seminar, Samara Scheckler, a Center postdoctoral fellow will describe research showing that grandparents living in counties characterized by high opioid use are much more likely to act as primary caregivers for their grandchildren. Implications of this care disruption will be explored and will be used as a platform to examine caregiving during the COVID-19 pandemic.
