The Diverse World of Family Caregiving

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) Committee on Family Caregiving for Older Adults will be holding a public workshop on the diversity of family caregiving issues. The event will be held Friday morning (8:30 am to noon), April 17 at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center of the National Academies in Irvine, CA and will also be webcast.

Three expert panels will explore:

  • Changing Faces in America: Implications for Older Adults and their Families
  • Perspectives from Providers: How Social Service Agencies Address Issues of Cultural Diversity
  • Beyond Race and Ethnicity: Additional Issues of Diverse Populations

This effort is part of a larger project to develop and release a report at the end of the 18 month project that will set the benchmark for caregiver support efforts in the future. Be part of the solution and attend this public workshop! 

A detailed agenda and list of speakers is available  here.
