Grandparents Raising Grandchildren: Input needed

We need your help!

In case you missed our last e-mail, Cohen Children’s Medical Center is conducting a national study focused on grandparents raising their grandchildren. The number of children in “grand-families” has increased dramatically in recent years, and studies suggest that this responsibility poses unique challenges to grandparents who assume this role.  We at Cohen Children’s Medical Center are conducting a national study and would like to hear from as many grandparents as possible. 

Please… forward this information about our research study to any and all grandparents raising their grandchildren.  

We are asking grandparents that are raising grandchildren to complete an anonymous, on-line questionnaire at www.GrandparentingResearch.comOur research study has been approved by our Institutional Review Board.  (A copy of the IRB determination letter is available on request).

Thank you for assistance in sharing information about our research study with grandparents raising grandchildren.  Of course, we would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
