Following the tragic impact of the ongoing COVID pandemic on nursing home residents and staff, is there new momentum for reform?

This month’s CARE Connections also includes new stakeholder engagement resources for health researchers; a profile of CARE Affiliate Jung-hye Shin, PhD, an Associate Professor at the UW–Madison School of Human Ecology; and news related to older adult health and well-being.
