      Keynote Address:  
      Marie-Therese Connolly 

      We are honored to have Marie-Therese Connolly provide the keynote address. Connolly draws on a blend of legal, policy, and legislative skills to combat elder abuse and mistreatment.  As director of the Department of Justice's Elder Justice and Nursing Home Initiative, Connolly developed new legal theories of liability and novel investigation and litigation strategies that overcame loopholes in federal statutes and led to successful prosecution of cases of abuse and neglect in nursing homes. Connolly was instrumental in the drafting and passage of the Elder Justice Act, the first piece of federal legislation to address the issue specifically. She brought together various stakeholders in the elder justice field — including researchers, law enforcement officials, social workers, advocates, legislators, and clinicians — to identify gaps in legislation and develop a comprehensive policy strategy. She is continuing this work as founder and director of the Life Long Justice initiative, where she is creating an integrated national advocacy effort to prevent, detect, and intervene in the mistreatment of the elderly and secure reauthorization of key federal legislation.
