A one-day forum on social isolation presented by Muskegon Community College and Tri-County Protection Team. Each day, aging adults are faced with social and psychological challenges as a result of isolation and loneliness, leaving them more vulnerable to financial fraud, abuse, hoarding disorder, depression and even suicide. The Tri-County Protection Team, hosted by AgeWell Services, invites you to be part of an important forum featuring national speaker Dr. Arbore, the founder of the Institute on Aging located in San Francisco, California as well as several local experts on the topic.

This important forum is for Social Workers, Nurses, Practitioners, Law Enforcement Officers and professionals working with and for the older population. 3 credit hours of Social Work CEUs, SCECHs and MCOLES are available.
