Seed grants awarded to Fellows Parcesepe and Ng


June 28, 2020

In June, Fellows Angela Parcesepe and Shu Wen Ng were each awarded seed grants to investigate the impacts of the SARS-COV-2 pandemic on US families.

Parcesepe’s mixed method study aims to generate knowledge and advance understanding of the impact of COVID-related work and family arrangements on maternal mental health in U.S. during the SARS-COV-2 pandemic and examine to what extent resilience, coping, family structure, and health or economic stressors moderate the relationship between work and family arrangements and maternal mental health during the pandemic.

Ng is looking at pandemic benefits for US households and their impacts on household food security and nutritional quality.
