Education Committee

The Education Committee  conducts outreach efforts to raise public awareness and to educate first responders and service providers to prevent, identify and investigate elder abuse cases.
 
Committee efforts focus on expanding education and outreach efforts to raise awareness of elder abuse to the public and professionals alike. Education is key to early detection, prevention and increased reporting of elder abuse cases. Topics focus on elder abuse research, policies, and interventions that have demonstrated effectiveness in combating elder abuse, neglect and exploitation. The committee sponsors annual events that afford educational opportunities cross the state with the primary goal of expanding positive outcomes for elder abuse victims state-wide.
 
 
Committee meetings are held quarterly by conference calls. Please contact Sylvia Pla-Raith at Sylvia.Pla-Raith@OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov  if you would like to learn more and/or interested in joining the committee.
