This two-part panel presentation will provide an overview and summary of findings from a research study that assessed levels of elder abuse awareness among social work, nursing, health professions, and criminal justice students. This overview will be followed by a presentation on The Risk and Resiliency Internship Project (RRIP), created by NYC Elder Abuse Center (NYCEAC) and The Legacy Project, designed to expose undergraduates to the wisdom and robust experience of older generations as well as to the issue of elder abuse.
