In collaboration with researchers at UCSF’s Aging, Metabolism and Emotions Center, directed by Drs. Elissa Epel & Aric Prather, the Brain Health Registry is working to better understand the daily and psychological experience of caregivers
Caregivers care for people with different disabilities, injuries, and illnesses – brain disease, heart disease, autism, and other conditions. Many are caregivers for someone who needs extra help due to age.
Caregivers have a difficult task before them: How do they provide the best care for their loved one AND take care of their own health and wellness? While the answer is complex, research shows that one of the most important things caregivers can do is to take care of themselves.
The FDA Office of Women’s Health (OWH) is partnering with the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health to initiate a Diverse Women in Clinical Trials Campaign (DWCT). The campaign’s goal is to raise the awareness of the importance for women of different ages, races, ethnic backgrounds, and health conditions to participate in clinical trials.
