Session facilitated by Carol M. Musil

Professor, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing

Dr. Musil’s research focuses on stress, health, and caregiving. For the past 17 years, Dr. Musil has studied, longitudinally, the physical and psychological health of grandmothers, especially those raising grandchildren, and how factors such as resourcefulness and support affect the grandmother’s health and family well-being especially during times of strain and transitions. She takes a multigenerational view of families, and has included grandmothers and their grandchildren  in her research.

Her research has been funded by the American Nurses’ Foundation, and by the National Institute of Nursing Research and the National Institute of Aging at the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Musil has received the Hartford/Midwest Nursing Research Society (MNRS) Award for Leadership in Geriatric Nursing and the Senior Scientist Award from MNRS. She is recognized as a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing and in the Gerontological Society of America.

On campus, Dr. Musil has been very involved in faculty governance, and has chaired the Faculty Senate Committee on Research, and she chaired the CWRU Faculty Senate in 2009-2010.
