2019 Minnesota World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Conference: Awareness Moves Forward
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) was created by the United Nations International Plan of Action recognizing the significance of elder abuse as a growing social and financial concern, public health matter, and human rights issue. This year marks the 13th anniversary of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day in the United States and the 12th annual event in Minnesota. Each June, the Minnesota Elder Justice Center and its Center Partners sponsor a full-day professional education conference in conjunction with World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. The goal of this conference is to elevate the issue of elder abuse, neglect and financial exploitation and provide education on best practices for prevention and response.
This year’s conference, Elder Justice: Awareness Moves Forward, will be held on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at the Earle Brown Heritage Center. Registration is limited to 600 attendees. This conference is directed towards professionals who work with older and vulnerable adults. This includes Adult Protection Services, State Agencies, Non-Profits Organizations, Attorneys, Social Workers, representatives from the Criminal Justice System, Law Enforcement, Long-term Care Providers, and more.
