About Pamela Fruechting
I am a doctoral candidate, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee College of Nursing. My interests are global orphan care and community-based models of care. In August 2012 I will be traveling to Malawi to conduct my dissertation research on child-headed households in a rural, HIV-endemic region that is served by an NGO. Utilizing qualitative methods, my primary aim is to explore the relationship between vulnerability and subjective well-being with the intent to inform NGO orphan programming.
Interests: Children affected by and infected by HIV, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa; family health; theories of well-being; faith and well-being.
