GEH’s Rebecca Fielding-Miller PhD, MSPH receives funding from UC-CDPH Collaborative for Pandemic Resiliency Research
Date: October 5, 2023
In October, GEH’s Dr. Rebecca Fielding-Miller received an award from The California Collaborative for Pandemic Recovery and Readiness Research (CPR³) for their research on pandemic-related burnout among socially vulnerable caregivers in California.
Their research will help to address evidence gaps in how the COVID-19 pandemic affected the health and wellbeing of communities throughout California. More than 30 research projects led by teams from all 10 University of California (UC) campuses have been awarded over $6 million in funding from the CPR3 program which is a collaboration between UCSF, the California Health and Human Services Agency (CalHHS), and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
CPR³ projects are a foundational element of the overall CPR³ initiative, which is focused on implementing a public health research agenda centered on health equity and engaging with communities.
This project was chosen because of its focus on childcare and the pandemic, which is part of a priority research area for CPR³, children and adolescents. The goals of Fielding-Miller’s research are to fill critical gaps in understanding and supporting the recovery of low-income and socially vulnerable caregivers of young children experiencing pandemic-related burnout and to help California childcare providers and policy advocates prepare for the next pandemic or societal crisis.
