Information fair targets elder abuse, neglect


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Medicaid fraud and abuse investigator Nikki Henderson will be guest speaker at an April 23 information fair about elder abuse and neglect that University of Louisville is sponsoring.

    Kent School of Social Work students who will graduate this year with a gerontology specialization have planned the fair for professionals who work in aging services and for older adults who could use such services. The students will be available to discuss elder issues such as emotional, physical, sexual and financial abuse.

    The free, public fair will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Kling Center, a neighborhood senior activity center at 219 W. Ormsby Ave.
