In this seminar, Samara Scheckler, a postdoctoral fellow at the Joint Center for Housing Studies, will describe research showing that grandparents living in counties characterized by high opioid use are much more likely to act as primary caregivers for their grandchildren. Implications of this care disruption will be explored and will be used as a platform to examine caregiving during the COVID-19 pandemic.
