Jennifer Craft Morgan is on faculty at the Gerontology Institute at Georgia State University in downtown Atlanta. She is currently the co-chair of the Carework Network steering committee and has been an active member of the network since 2003. Her research focuses on jobs and careers – particularly on low wage care workers in health care - attempting to understand how policy, population, workplace and individual level factors shape how work is experienced and how work is organized. Jennifer uses a life course perspective paying particular attention to issues of social stratification related to aging and gender. Her work ties research, education and service together by focusing on the translation of lessons learned. This translation of research into lessons and tools serves to help stakeholders, such as employers, program implementers, and workers, to build evidence-based solutions to pressing problems.
