According to the National Institute on Aging, elder abuse can happen to anyone—no matter the person’s age, sex, race, religion, or ethnic or cultural background. Each year, hundreds of thousands of adults over the age of 60 are abused, neglected, or financially exploited. This is called elder abuse.
Join PSNA on October 23 for a panel discussion to identify types of abuse, discuss the signs of abuse, address who can help, and more. There is no cost to attend this event.
This event is open to healthcare professionals, students, and the general public.

The glaring racial disparities and impact on the social determinants of health unearthed by the COVID-19 pandemic support the development of anti-racist research approaches to address these issues. The persistent presence of healthcare disparities in our nation, our racist past, and the lack of diversity in the nursing profession are increasingly evident. Dr. Fields’ presentation will address these issues and the need to improve recruitment of diverse and inclusive human subject samples in research studies.
Dr. Fields is Research Professor and Associate Dean for Equity and Inclusion at the Penn State College of Nursing. He is a well-known and respected HIV/AIDS prevention research scientist with a focus on young men of color. He is a lifetime member of the National Black Nurses Association, Inc. He is also founder and CEO of “The S.D.F Group, LLC”, which is a health innovation consultant company. He has 29 years of experience in the health sector as an educator, researcher, clinician, administrator, consultant, health policy specialist, and entrepreneur/business owner.
