Se Listo! EFPN Brings Education to San Francisco’s Spanish Speaking Elders!

June 22, 2010

On March 26, EFPN presented a “Be Wise: Avoid Frauds, Scams and Identity Theft” Seminar at the Mission Neighborhood Center in the Mission District. The Spanish-language presentation featured Marco Chavarin of the City and County of San Francisco, Helen Karr of the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, Adela Coronado of the FDIC and Deborah Espinola of  California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform.  45 Spanish-speaking elders participated in the event, and everyone had a great time (and a free lunch!)

The event was generously sponsored by CITI. As the crime of elder financial abuse targets seniors from all socio-econmic backgrounds, EFPN is proud to equip  elders from these multilingual communities with the important message of how prevent elder financial abuse!

Buen trabajo EFPN and all our sponsors!
