My name is May Kanti and I am an M.S. candidate in the Virginia Tech Marriage & Family Therapy program. I am doing research about the experience of Asian Americans who provide care and financial support to elderly parents.

You are eligible to participate if:

· You were born in the U.S. OR you immigrated to the U.S. before age 12.
· You live in the U.S.
· You have a parent who is 65 years old or older.
· Your parent was born in China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, or Southeast Asia.
· Your parent has been living with you for at least a year.
· You have been providing financial support for your parent during that time.

You are not eligible to participate if your parent has a chronic illness, such as Alzheimer’s disease or cancer.

What does participating in this study entail?

· A 10-minute telephone screening.
· Brief demographic questionnaire.
· Approximately one-hour interview in-person, over the phone, or via Skype. During the interview, you will be asked questions about your experience as an Asian American caring for your parent. If the interview takes place in-person, it will take place at a location convenient to you.

Participants will receive a $25 Amazon gift card upon completion of demographic questionnaire and interview.

Please contact May at [masked] or [address removed] to find out whether you are eligible to participate.
