Voices on Caregiving: Cynthia Banks

ASA is committed to uplifting the voices and experiences of BIPOC community members, so we are excited to announce a new series, Voices on Caregiving. In this series, we hear from a diverse group of family caregivers about their caregiving journeys, how caregiving affects the rest of their lives and what happens when they are no longer caregivers. Some are from the Sandwich Generation, some are Millennials, some are older adults, but all of their stories are relevant to ASA members and beyond.

As we started working on the series, we were soon reminded that many of the people we talk to every day—our coworkers—are also family caregivers. The first episode features ASA’s Chief of Staff, Cynthia Banks, sharing a moving story about caring for her father from a distance during the COVID-19 crisis.
