~This free event is a Webinar and takes place online. Registration required.~
Elder abuse and neglect is a growing issue as America ages. There are several physical markers which help to identify elder mistreatment. Some of these include physical conditions such as documented but untreated injuries, inconsistencies between the reported time of death and condition of the body, and signs of malnutrition and dehydration.
This Webinar is the second in a two-part series on elder abuse, sponsored by the Government Innovators Network and the National Institute of Justice (you may view a *recording* of the first Webinar which examined on incidence and prevalence).
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
