As the opioid crisis continues to impact Appalachia, children are being left behind. This morning we have the first of a series of stories about grandparents who take on the role of primary caregiver for their grandchildren. To begin the series, health reporter Kara Lofton talks with professor Megan Dolbin-MacNab – a researcher at Virginia Tech who is studying grandparent headed families – about the health impacts of this arrangement.
This is the first installment in a series that will continue over the next month or so, exploring the health impacts of grandparents raising grandchildren in West Virginia.
