Education is key to early detection, prevention and increased reporting of elder abuse cases. Topics focus on elder abuse research, policies, and interventions that have demonstrated effectiveness in combating elder abuse, neglect and exploitation. The committee sponsors annual events that afford educational opportunities cross the state with the primary goal of expanding positive outcomes for elder abuse victims state-wide.
