It is with deep sorrow that the American Elder Abuse Conference announces the death of Ms. Pat King. Her death is a great personal loss to her family and friends, and we send our condolences and prayers on her passing. Pat was a staunch advocate for older adults, and was a pioneer in developing innovative methods of preventing, intervening and investigating Elder Abuse. Pat’s absence from the struggle against mistreatment of older adults leaves a great chasm in the community of those who work tirelessly to protect our elders; her loss is a momentous set-back to the nation.
Pat was scheduled to teach nine hours of classes at the 2021 conference, including the AFN Elder Abuse Boot Camp for nurses. Unfortunately there is no other person prepared at this time to step into the role of presenter for these classes, so the AFN Boot Camp has been removed from the schedule. However AFN has created a video CNE program of the Boot Camp with a special 50% discount to attendees of the 2021 American Elder Abuse Conference.
