FoR-VA (Families of Richmond, Virginia): The overall aim of the FoR-VA study is to learn how children and families adapt and cope with daily challenges. We are concerned with diverse individual, dyadic, family, and broader contextual risk and protective factors for child emotional and immune health outcomes. We also plan to learn more about how these processes work in children with chronic inflammatory illness (asthma) and without. Families participating in the FoR-VA study are invited to our research suite in the city of Richmond, where we conduct a series of interviews and observational activities. We have enjoyed meeting the children and parents who have met with us so far and look forward to getting to know more Richmond families as the study continues.
The Families of Richmond, VA Extension (FoR-VA-X) study examines links between children’s daily stress and their immune profiles. FoR-VA-X invites participants from the larger FoR-VA study. This project is funded by a Presidential Research Quest Fund award from VCU.
