Meet our current Fellow:
Dr. Tia Zeno, our very first PAA fellow, is finishing up her year long fellowship at the Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research at the National Institute of Health (http://obssr.od.nih.gov/index.aspx). Dr. Zeno has been invited to continue her fellowship for a second year. During her first year placement Dr. Zeno has had opportunity to be on detail to the Office of Management and Budget (http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/inforeg_default), Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Statistical and Science Policy Branch, Federal Interagency Forum on Aging-Related Statistics. The project is intended to identify a set of variables (new and/or existing) to measure key concepts in informal caregiving for consideration in future editions of Older Americans, Key Indicators of Well Being (OA). The Forum seeks to write a broader review of the current measurement in caregiving.
