Stuck In The Middle

Aisha Adkins

The challenges of being a millennial caregiver.

Family caregiver and advocate, Aisha Adkins, shares the complexities of caring for her mother while pursuing her own dreams and ambitions. With her sights set on transforming the structures and systems that fail to foster support for her life and that of other millennial caregivers, Aisha provides a persuasive argument that our collective future as a global community depends on getting things right for younger generations caught between caring for others and taking care of themselves.
