The mission of the USC Judith D. Tamkin International Symposium on Elder Abuse is to create safe and healthy environments for all elders, here and across the world, by bringing thought leaders, activists, caregivers, researchers, lawmakers, and other stakeholders together to share findings, strategize solutions, and help shape and propel the field of elder abuse and justice.
This inaugural symposium called for researchers, academics, physicians, nurses, and psychologists to attend in an endeavor to Close the Research Gaps and Move the Field of Elder Abuse Forward. The symposium was held September 15-16, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport in Los Angeles, CA.
As part of the USC Judith D. Tamkin Symposium on Elder Abuse’s mission, we were pleased to offer travel awards for students through the Tamkin Scholar Award. The goal of this award is to stimulate interest in elder abuse research and to help students attend the symposium.
