C-FAHR Research Foci

The research of C-FAHR members has a common goal of identifying the ways in which the family system can operate effectively as a vehicle for promoting health and for managing chronic illnesses across time and across developmental life stages. Currently, consortium members are conducting research related to five broad research topics, and are coming together around these topics to develop innovative and interdisciplinary training that has the potential to transform the role of the family in health policy and health care encounters.
