Officials say at least 73,000 older adults in Michigan are victims of elder abuse at the hands of individuals entrusted to care for them. Listening tour attendees will be able to share their concerns about the often under-recognized and under-reported social problem. Input will be used to better guide the Attorney General’s Elder Abuse Task Force.

The event will be held at the Northern Center from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on NMU’s campus.
