Dr. Carolina Caetano on Youth Enrichment Study


From sports to clubs to homework, high school students are busier than ever. New research from the University of Georgia suggests that these so-called “enrichment activities” may have a negative impact on student mental health. Dr. Carolina Caetano is an assistant professor of economics at the University of

Georgia’s Terry College of Business and a co-author of the study. WUGA’s Alexia Ridley sat down to discuss her study’s findings earlier this week.
