Medicaid fraud and abuse investigator Nikki Henderson will be guest speaker at an information fair about elder abuse and neglect that the University of Louisville is sponsoring.

Kent School of Social Work students who will graduate this year with a gerontology specialization have planned the fair for professionals who work in aging services and for older adults who could use such services. The students will be available to discuss elder issues such as emotional, physical, sexual and financial abuse.

Henderson, a retired Louisville police sergeant and Kent alumna, now works for the state Office of the Attorney General as an investigator in the Medicaid fraud and abuse control division. She formerly worked in aging services for the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services. Henderson recently won the Kentucky Women’s Law Enforcement Network’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Her talk will be from noon to 1 p.m.

The luncheon starts at 11:30 a.m.

Continuing education credits are available to professionals who attend.
