The New York State Elder Abuse Prevalence Study is one of the most ambitious and comprehensive studies to quantify the extent of elder abuse in a discrete jurisdiction ever attempted, and certainly the largest in any single American state. With funding from the New York State William B. Hoyt Memorial Children and Family Trust Fund, a program administered under NYS Office of Children and Family Services, three community, governmental, and academic partners (Lifespan of Greater Rochester, The New York City Department for the Aging and the Weill Cornell Medical College) formed a collaborative partnership to conduct the study. Fordham University is a partner with Lifespan on the study.
