“Hopeful New Approaches to Elder Justice”

Editor’s note: This event has been postponed and will not be held April 25.

The University Center on Aging and Health at Case Western Reserve University and Benjamin Rose are pleased to welcome The Measure of Our Age author MT Connolly, JD, for this special event Thursday, April 25, at 10 a.m. at 11890 Fairhill Road.

MT Connolly is a national expert on elder justice, and was awarded a MacArthur “genius” grant for her work that has shaped policy, research and practice for decades. She was the architect of the Elder Justice Act, founded the Department of Justice’s Elder Justice Initiative, and co-designed the innovative and evidence-based RISE program integrating holistic and restorative approaches to elder justice.

Her book, The Measure of Our Age: Navigating Care, Safety, Money, and Meaning Later in Life, tells the story of elder justice. This event is designed for older adults, family caregivers, health and social service providers, students, and others interested in elder justice.
