KCH Associate Professor Dr. Sandraluz Lara-Cinisomo appeared on radio station WDWS-AM on Wednesday to discuss her upcoming studies, AgeCareVets and VetCareMind.

AgeCareVets is trying to understand the needs and experiences of caregivers of Veterans with brain-related disorders to identify and provide recommendations for new programs and services. The aim is to learn how to better support older caregivers of veterans with brain-related injuries.

For VetCareMind, the objective of that study is to modify an in-person mindfulness-based intervention for live stream delivery for informal caregivers of veterans, who provide complex care for longer durations than non-veteran caregivers, often while meeting other life demands. The aim is finding out how to provide a low-cost intervention to informal caregivers of veterans throughout the country.

Dr. Lara-Cinisomo discussed both studies and made an effort to offer ways for possible participants to reach out to her for either study through go.illinois.edu/AgeCareVet or go.illinois.edu/VetCareMind. They can also call 217-244-9363 or email vetcaremind@illinois.edu or agecarevet@illinois.edu
