Posted: March 29, 2011
Jaqui Angel received more than $680,000 from the National Institute of Health’s National Center for Minority and Health Disparity. As Principal Investigator, Dr. Angel will lead a team of researchers from the Population Research Center, University of California, Los Angeles, and Florida State University to study the risk of long-term care in older Mexican-American families.
“The grant is the first look at the extent to which immigration-related factors and economic resources affect options and living arrangements for older Mexican Americans as they age into the third stage of their lives and their potential repercussions for families in later life,” said Angel.
