World Elder Abuse Awareness Day - June 15, 2015

April 26, 2016

Each June, the Minnesota Elder Justice Center along with their sponsors, which include MN Department of Human Services and MN Board on Aging, sponsor a full-day professional education conference in conjunction with World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) to strengthen the mission to combat elder abuse.

WEAAD is also supportive of the United Nations International Plan of Action which recognizes the significance of elder abuse as a growing social and financial concern, a public health matter, and a human rights issue.

In 2016, the WEAAD conference will be held on June 15 at the University of Minnesota Continuing Education Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.
