SBE CCC welcomes two new research teams to the consortium

SBE CCC is pleased to welcome two new research teams to the SBE COVID consortium: Emily Wiemers of Syracuse University, and Peiyin Hung and Xiaoming Li of University of South Carolina.

Dr. Wiemers, associate professor of public administration and international affairs at Syracuse, received a grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA) to examine the health and economic challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic across generations of American families and how families responded to these challenges. The project will create a contextual database with information on multiple domains linked to two nationally-representative surveys of extended families, the Health and Retirement Study and the Panel Study of Income Dynamics.

Dr. Hung, assistant professor of health services policy and management, and Dr. Li, professor of health promotion, education, and behavior, received funding from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to study disparities in maternal health care during the pandemic. Their study examines differences in maternal care outcomes by race, ethnicity, and rural/urban residency and explores the mitigating effects of telehealth policies for perinatal health outcomes.
