In the area of reintegration, the support of persons re-entering society is often supplied (especially as a last resort) by middle aged mothers, aunts and older grandmothers. Professor Ellis' research is in chronic disease self-management for African American women with multiple chronic diseases.

One context variable she studies is family caregiving and its effect on health self-management.  Because of the mass incarceration of African American, especially men in Milwaukee, there is a form of caregiving that is essential and common and not experienced by other groups, especially European Americans. There is research that has shown that having a stable place to stay with food, shelter, acceptance is essential for the reintegration process which is long—trying to find employment, attend support groups if available, etc. For that reason, women in the black community need to engage in self-care in order to be able to continue to provide that support.
