Aging and Financial Exploitation
The Summer Institute on Aging is a four-day, interdisciplinary course co-sponsored by Loyola’s School of Law and School of Social Work that is open to social workers, attorneys, nurses, physicians, counselors, and geriatric care managers. This highly interactive course will explore the psychosocial, ethical, policy and legal issues related to financial exploitation and consumer fraud among older adults.  Issues related to race, gender, ethnic and income differences among the elderly will be discussed. The course will feature faculty and guest speakers from a variety of disciplines.  Through simulations and group work, the course provides an excellent opportunity for true interdisciplinary collaboration.
