Family caregivers deserve praise and support during COVID-19 crisis

Our hospital workers are definitely among the heroes of the COVID-19 crisis, but they are joined by 340,000 Utahns who care for family, friends, and neighbors in their spare time, writes Debra Scammon, Emma Eccles Jones Professor of Marketing, in The Salt Lake Tribune.

Scammon and her colleagues Lee Ellington, Robert S. and Beth M. Carter Professor in the College of Nursing and director of the Family Caregiving Initiative at the University of Utah, and Rebecca Utz, an associate professor of sociology in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and co-director of the Consortium for Families & Health Research at the University of Utah, offer tips — and heartfelt thanks — to these caregivers in their Tribune editorial.
