An upcoming conference is centered on fighting elder abuse.

Organizers are encouraging those interested to save the date for the “Community Action Against Elder Abuse” event on Friday, April 20th. Main speakers will include Livingston County Prosecutor Bill Vailliencourt and Assistant Prosecutor Scott Ehlfeldt, who will give a local update on elder abuse. Other speakers and a community resource panel will talk about fraud and recognizing financial exploitation, legal mediation, and other civil and legal issues associated with elder abuse.

The conference will take place from 9am to 3pm at the Livingston County EMS building on Tooley Road in Howell Township. Registration is underway with a $15 suggested donation to cover the cost of a continental breakfast, lunch and materials.
