In recognition of Victims and Survivors of Crime Week, EAPO is hosting a Virtual Learning Series to transform conversations on how we support older adults and unleash the power of agencies to break down walls for building a more robust community response to elder abuse.

Dr. Weeks will provide an overview of current knowledge about the needs of women in midlife and older who experience intimate partner knowledge. She will share information about the development and implementation of the AIM Study including the content of the AIM program developed to support women in midlife and older and training community-based researchers to deliver the AIM program.
