Davidson Continuing Education Center (DCC), Vineyard Room
3415 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90089

A crisis is looming in our prisons due to the rapidly aging prison population. Prison facilities are not geared to accommodate the needs of the aging, who are prone to predation and humiliation with the natural slowdown of physical mobility and cognitive processes. This symposium will promote awareness, highlight existing model programs and bring stakeholders together to exchange knowledge and ideas about addressing the health needs of an aging incarcerated population.

The event is hosted by the USC Edward Roybal Institute on Aging at the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work in partnership with the Center for Health Justice. Event details at

Continuing Education Units (CEUs): 4 CEUs offered for nurses, marriage and family therapists and licensed clinical social workers.
