Dr. Glenna S. Brewster is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Medicine. As a predoctoral scholar, she examined the relationships among sleep, depressive symptoms, and cognition in older adults and caregivers of persons with dementia. In order to extend this research, she aims to conduct longitudinal research to identify the factors that increase the risk of cognitive impairment in caregivers of persons with dementia. Based on her findings, she plans to develop and test caregiver-focused interventions.
