Jewish Grandparenting Project

This is a study of older, Jewish adults who are responsible for providing primary care to both their grandchildren and their disabled adult children.  The study focuses on psychosocial effects of this population's caregiving responsibilities.  This is a needs assessment designed to survey the health and mental health needs of this 'new' population.
The Principal Investigator for this study is Dr. Denise Burnette, and the  Co-Investigators are Ms. Evelyn Blanck and Ms. Leah Mason.  While the program is operating at JBFCS,  funding is being sought for the research component.
