Elder Abuse/Neglect

Elder Abuse: Forensic Markers

Apologies for being absent this week. I’ve been pretty mired in the photography symposium these last couple days (time well-spent, I might add). Over at the Government Innovators Network, they’re sponsoring a webinar series on elder abuse. The next one is March 22nd at 3pm ET and it will focus on forensic markers.

Registration is required to participate. From the site:

Listen to experts discuss what they know about bruising as well as the important role of forensic information and technology in effectively investigating cases of elder abuse and neglect.  Ample time will be allocated for audience Q&A.  The panel will include:

Andy Mao (moderator) – Senior Counsel for Health Care Fraud and Elder Abuse, Department of Justice

Lisa M. Gibbs, MD – Associate Medical Director, Family Medicine, School of Medicine at University of California, Irvine

Cherie Hill – Detective, Anaheim Police Department

Richard Harruff, MD, PhD – Chief Medical Examiner, Seattle – King County, Washington
