Family and Caregiver Support

Mission is to advocate and champion diversity and inclusion of APS members, specifically by caregivers as they pursue their scientific career. This will be achieved by providing information, services, and grants that support and facilitate participation of caregivers in APS and pursuit of their scientific careers and assist them in balancing the demands of their personal and professional lives. The office will work to include APS family members to encourage future generations of plant pathologists.
