The National Institutes of Health National Institute on Aging (NIH/NIA) has awarded $2,224,871 to a research team in the Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology. The team, led by Molly Perkins, PhD, associate professor of medicine, is investigating informal caregiver involvement in end-of-life care of persons with advanced dementia in assisted living.
