Dr. Kellie Brisini - Research Competitiveness Grant

Dr. Kellie Brisini, assistant professor of interpersonal communication, received a 2023 Research Competitiveness Grant from the Louisiana Board of Regents. The grant will fund a three-year project that examines the ways in which caring for an aging adult influences the relationship between married partners. Three studies will culminate in a relationship-focused, communication intervention designed to help couples navigate the stressors associated with caregiving in complex environments.
