Elder Abuse: Funders Can Make a Difference

Share this:

A "Conversations with GIA" webinar

Elder abuse is shockingly common, with more than four million older adults abused each year in the United States. This webinar outlined the unprecedented opportunities currently available to make a difference. Funders learned about the backdrop in which elder abuse occurs and were stimulated to think differently about how their priorities, present and future, directly and indirectly, can minimize this awful reality. Presenters: Laura Mosqueda, MD, and Mary Twomey, MSW, Co-Directors of the Center of Excellence on Elder Abuse and Neglect and the National Center on Elder Abuse at the University of California Irvine School of Medicine; and Laura Rath, MSG, Senior Program Officer, Archstone Foundation. GIA extends special thanks to our co-sponsors, The John A. Hartford Foundation and Archstone Foundation. Webinar date: April 23, 2013. View the recording at https://youtu.be/iLdZGKSsjLA.
