TEAM Institute Education and Outreach Division
This division provides up-to-date education on the reality of elder abuse and best practices for reporting, prevention, detection and response. Members of TEAM have provided hundreds of local, state and national presentations. Notably, TEAM has presented to agencies such as the U.S. Senate, American Medical Association, U.S. Elder Justice Coordinating Council, and the U.S. Department of Justice. Through education grants, the TEAM Institute has educated over 35,000 professionals and non-professionals including social workers, medical students, physicians, community agencies, legal / judicial entities, universities, home health agencies, hospice agencies, civic clubs, law enforcement and state and federal governmental agencies. Each year, the TEAM is involved with honoring Older Americans Month and World Elder Abuse Day by participating in local and statewide events targeting the education of the community and professionals about issues that affect older adults and promoting elder abuse awareness.
Please see below for a routinely updated list of past and current TEAM elder abuse educational activities and contributions.
