  1. Would this conference be appropriate for grandparents who are providing care for their grandchildren? I see in the above material the target audience is for “professionals”. I wanted to get clarification on this before I sent the word out. I would like a response before the 27th (the day of my presentation). Thank you.

    1. Thanks for your question, Monica! While content of the conference is generally more geared for professionals who support and advocate on behalf of grandfamilies, there is still plenty of relevant information for caregivers who are interested in trends, research, and policies affecting grandparents and other relatives raising grandchildren. We are hosting a special pre-conference on this topic on Wednesday, June 14. Thank you for sharing with your network!
