Since 1985, the UGA Center for Family Research has brought together scholars from diverse disciplines to explore innovative and dynamic ways of examining family life. In 1995, CFR activities began to focus more specifically on the reciprocal impact of children, their caregivers, and the broader community context on health and psychological adjustment among African American families living in the rural South. The result is years of research shedding light on factors that affect and strengthen these families as well as prevention programs.
