The rapidly growing elderly population in the United States is presenting state governments with challenges that greatly influence economics while magnifying the growing social issues currently facing them, such as the exploitation of vulnerable seniors.   This year's Program on Law and State Government fellowship symposium will examine the states' role in the care, protection and financing of their elderly population.  Fellow Sean Deneault will examine incentivizing state involvement to discover ways to minimize Medicare fraud. Fellow Tarah M.C. Baldwin will address the states' role in preventing physical and financial exploitation in an aging population with focus given in the areas of filial support, guardianships and powers of attorney.
