Center for Gerontology and Department of Human Development and Family Science faculty members Karen Roberto, University Distinguished Professor and director of the Institute for Society, Culture, and Environment, and Tina Savla were awarded a $2.14 million grant from the National Institute on Aging to examine the role of extended family caregivers and their service use, needs, and challenges. For the five-year study, “CareEx,” Roberto and Savla will recruit 240 extended family caregivers, along with 120 adult child and spouse caregivers to serve as a comparison group.
