The University of Pittsburgh’s National Center on Family Support (NCFS) will be hosting their second Conference on Caregiving Research on March 3-4, 2022.

The conference will assemble a multidisciplinary group of national leaders in caregiving research, policy and practice.

The center is currently seeking abstracts for poster and podium presentations.

The conference themes include:

  • caregiving as a public health priority
  • caregiving across transitions
  • understudied caregiver populations
  • cross-cutting assessment and interventions
  • technical innovations to support caregivers
  • emerging issues in caregiving

Abstract submissions will be open from Sept. 1-21, 2021.
