Drs. Jennifer Cavallari and Alicia Dugan of UConn Health were recently awarded a grant entitled “Changes in the way we work: the non-standard workday and worker and family health” from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. This 2.5 year grant will study the impacts of extended and irregular work days (EIWD) on workers’ and families’ health and well-being. A survey will be distributed amongst workers and their families within transportation, corrections, and manufacturing industries. Design teams will be used to plan intervention strategies that address the effects of EIWD.
