Making Elder Justice a Reality
The Federal and Philanthropic Perspecitves
A "Conversations with GIA" webinar
Elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation is a silent problem that robs seniors of their dignity, security, and — in some cases — their lives. Up to 5 million older Americans are abused every year, and the annual loss by victims of financial abuse is estimated to be at least $2.6 billion. What is the scope of the problem and how are government and philanthropy working to identify and solve the complex issues involved? This webinar presented two of the most important voices in this field discussing promising new approaches and the way in which we all can play a role in the solution. Presenters: Kathy Greenlee, JD, Administrator of the Administration for Community Living and the U.S. Assistant Secretary for Aging; and Terry Fulmer, PhD, RN, FAAN, President of The John A. Hartford Foundation. Sponsor: The John A. Hartford Foundation. Webinar date: January 15, 2016. View it at https://youtu.be/uY-gM4cnOtQ.
