~ Raising awareness and supporting Idaho’s multi-disciplinary efforts to prevent elder abuse and exploitation ~

The 2011 Idaho Summit on Elder Abuse and Exploitation will be held Thursday and Friday, June 16-17, 2011, at the Boise State University Student Union Building. On Thursday, June 16, the keynote speakers will be Lisa Nerenberg, author and nationally recognized leader in the prevention of elder abuse and Wendy Olson, U.S. Attorney for Idaho.

The second day of the summit (Friday, June 17th) is the “Senior Scam Jam”. It is designed specifically for consumers and includes educational seminars designed to prevent financial fraud and exploitation. AARP is taking reservations for the Senior Scam Jam.

You can register by phone at 1-877-926-8300 or online at

A special feature planned for both days of the Summit is the presentation of a one-act play, titled Cherry Pie, written and produced by Christine Rosensteel. Ms. Rosensteel is an Adult Protection worker and has produced several plays depicting the insidious ways vulnerable adults can be exploited or abused. This play will make you laugh, cry and move you to action.
