- Save the date for 2020 Tamkin Symposium! The mission of the USC Judith D. Tamkin Symposium on Elder Abuse is to create safe and healthy environments for all elders, here and across the world. Thought leaders, researchers, policy makers, clinicians, advocates and other stakeholders are brought together to share findings, strategize solutions, and help shape and propel the field of elder abuse and justice.
- Elder Abuse is not a problem for “someone else” to solve. Every one of us shapes the communities in which we live, therefore, every one of us has a role to play in advancing elder justice. Let us keep the energy going, because every day we are aging and striving to make the world a better place.
We are proud to have the support and participation of all 50 states engaged in World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) events across the nation, we have totaled 320 events in 14 countries and are still climbing!
We appreciate everyone's efforts throughout the world to declare their commitment to ending abuse.
