Religious and cultural beliefs inform how we view and support our elders in our respective communities. Join local faith and cultural leaders to share these perspectives and learn how to assist older adults so that they can age safely and healthfully. Speakers will share tips and strategies for building capacity to identify all forms of elder abuse and community resources available to respond effectively.

Keynote Speaker: Rabbi Dayle Friedman
