The UW-Green Bay Gerontology Center continues its ongoing community Brown-Bag Series with a program from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. next Friday (Oct. 26) in MAC-201 (The Gathering Room). Prof. Doreen Higgins (Social Work) and Devon Christianson, director of the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Brown County, will present “Elder Abuse: A Delicate Balance.” The interactive presentation will touch upon various facets of elder abuse with special attention to elder abuse in Brown County. Human Development Prof. Dean VonDras, organizer of the series, says the brown bags are intended to be informal and provide opportunities for students, faculty, and others in the community interested in gerontology to exchange ideas and information.
