Katerina Marcoulides
, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota, and other UMN professors received funding from the National Institute of Health (NIH) Institute of Child Health and Human Development for their study, “Unequal Parenthoods: Population Perspectives on Gender, Race, and Sexual Minority Disparities in Family Stress and Health During Crises.” The grant runs from 9/21/21 through 8/31/26. The study investigates ​​the complex associations among parenting, marginalization, and well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic. Understanding how parents fared during this time in a fully-powered, population-representative sample from across the life course is crucial to identifying mechanisms linking race, gender, and sexual identity marginalization to disparities in parental well-being with critical implications for child health.
