Superior Choice Credit Union's Tanya Martineau will be on hand for the panel of service providers at the 2017 Twin Ports Elder Abuse Awareness and Prevention Community Forum. Tanya will provide insight on elder abuse as it pertains to their finances.

Every year an estimated 5 million, or 1 in 10, older Americans are victims of elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation. And experts believe that for every reported case of elder abuse or neglect, as many as 23.5 cases go unreported.
This forum will provide resources and an opportunity to ask questions by a panel of experts who deal with cases of elder abuse.
The forum takes place on Thursday, June 15 at UW-Superior.
