When: June 18th, 2024 from 9 AM – 5 PM
Where: UC Law San Francisco (198 McAllister St.)

We are thrilled to announce the return of our in-person Conference on Elder Abuse, California’s premier conference for attorneys, advocates, social workers, fiduciaries, care managers, and others committed to preventing and responding to elder abuse.

At a time when financial abuse and housing precarity are on the rise for older adults, Conference sessions will focus on examining the various ways older adults experience elder abuse within our communities. Speakers will provide effective tools and strategies to identify and address issues that impact older adults.

This year’s 18th Conference on Elder Abuse will take place at UC Law San Francisco on June 18th and is being co-sponsored by the UCSF-UC Law SF Consortium on Law, Science & Health Policy. We hope you will join us on June 18th for what promises to be an inspiring, relevant, and thought-provoking 18th Conference on Elder Abuse.
