The FamilyScholars Symposium series seeks to recruit and highlight scholars and opinion leaders in a one-time engagement focused on a key theme, report, or book topic. Goals for each Symposium include engaging a high quality cohort of thinkers, creating an on-line format that is easy to maneuver and read, and facilitating a high level of conversation in response to the opinions shared.
Rev. Amy Ziettlow serves as Editor of the FamilyScholars Symposium series. She is co-investigator of a study on caregiving and grief funded by the Lilly Endowment and co-author of the forthcoming The Gen X Caregiver.
Suggestions for future Symposia can be sent to aziettlow [at] americanvalues.org.
