$4M Grant Aims to Reduce Stress in Caregivers

2019

"Now a nearly $4M grant from the National Cancer Institute to researchers at University of Colorado Cancer Center seeks to lessen the impacts of stress specifically on cancer caregivers who are also employed. The project hopes to help caregivers manage the demands of their jobs and their lives, while also meeting the day-to-day needs of their loved one with cancer."

 

Co-PI's Dr. Mark Laudenslager and Dr. Cathy Bradley along with Co-Investigator Dr. Nicole Amoyal Pensak and others will lead this research.
