"On September 15-16, 2016, researchers, practitioners, and students from around the globe assembled in Los Angeles, California to focus on closing the gaps in elder abuse research at the inaugural University of Southern California (USC) Judith D. Tamkin International Symposium on Elder Abuse. The mission of the Tamkin Symposium is to create safe and healthy environments for elders in the United States and abroad by bringing together thought leaders, activists, caregivers, researchers, lawmakers, and other stakeholders to share findings and strategize solutions. At this exciting event, presenters offered new ways of thinking about the topic of elder abuse, from how we conceptualize it to how we study it to how we communicate research findings. This was a dynamic event in which presenters as well as audience members actively participated and collaborated to share ideas and findings.''
