Upcoming Activities

Utah C-Pops (Caregiving Population Science) Group Symposium 

The Utah C-Pops (Caregiving Population Science) Group is sponsoring a symposium October 31st at noon to showcase caregiving-related analyses with UPDB and other population data sources.  Analyses will examine the impact of family on aging and end-of-life experiences and conversely, the impact of end-of-life caregiving and bereavement on families’ health and well-being.

Topic: C-FAHR Caregiving Analyses with UPDB

Time: Oct 31, 2022 12:00 PM Mountain Time (US and Canada)

Meeting ID: 884 7682 9829

Passcode: C-FAHR


In spring of 2021 two Innovations Groups were Funded, these groups are currently looking for members. 

The Utah C-PopS (Caregiving Population Science) Group

This group led by Caroline Stephens - used their funds to bring together scholars who would like to use population based data sources – particularly, the Utah Population Database – to do research on family caregiving.  This group has received IRB/RGE approval to do research on a cohort of decedents, linked to all of their first-degree family members.  The group trained statisticians who can help the team write papers and grant proposals, as well as consult with new teams about how to use UPDB for family caregiving related topics.  If you are interested in learning more about this group, please contact Caroline Stephens at, and please provide as much information as possible about your research interests:

  • What do you want to accomplish with UPDB data? Papers? Projects? Proposals?
  • What are your variables of interest? What questions do you have about the data? Process?
  • Who is on your team?
  • Are there specific things/people you need/want help with to be successful? Do you have the expertise you need? Do you need specific partners/collaborators?
  • How can we best support you to be successful? 
  • What is your timeline?


The Leveraging Family for Interventions Group

This group led by Brian Baucom and Cindy Berg - have developed a database of family measures that are ready to be used by the C-FAHR community (in qualtrics with scoring syntax available), contact for access to the measures.  In addition, Cindy Berg and J.D. Smith submitted in May a T32 on the Role of Families in Diabetes Prevention and Management.  The goal of the T32 is to provide interdisciplinary training to predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees in family science, methods, and intervention translation that will open up new pathways for intervention development and management of diabetes.  This innovations group holds regular Proposals in Progress meetings throughout the year.  Contact Brian Baucom ( or Cindy Berg ( know if you’d like to join the group.  Faculty, postdocs and graduate students are welcome to attend.
