Winner of the Join the Conversation Contest

Congratulations to Subharati Ghosh, PhD, MSW, who won our Share, Tweet, Tag or Recommend Contest and a free registration to the 2013 Aging in America Conference in Chicago, March 12-16

Dr. Ghosh is a post-doctoral fellow at the Lurie Institute for Disability Policy. Her work focuses on the life-course impacts of parenting a child with developmental disabilities and severe mental illnesses. She is primarily interested in studying how long term caregiving affects wellbeing of families. Dr. Ghosh completed her doctoral degree from the University of Wisconsin Madison, School of Social Work, 10', where she studied the late life challenges of parental caregivers to adults with developmental disability or mental illness, especially when one of the caregiving parents also develops a disability. The study assessed the financial and psycho-social wellbeing of aging families who have multiple caregiving responsibilities. The phenomenon of multiple caregiving roles in later life is going to significantly increase as people with disabilities live longer, and has consequences for future policy and practice. At Brandeis, she continues to nurture her research interests in disability and family caregiving, especially among aging parents. Dr. Ghosh is also interested in global aging, and currently working with her colleague on aging in India using some of the available data sets. 

Attending the Aging in American Conference will allow Dr. Ghosh to meet some of the leading professionals and researchers interested in aging. It will also help her network and collaborate with researchers doing similar work.
