About the Presenter:

Marti DeLiema, Ph.D., is a gerontologist and Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work at the University of Minnesota. An important component of aging well is avoiding financial abuse and fraud, yet victimization causes millions of Americans to become financially fragile in older age. Using both quantitative and qualitative research methods, Professor DeLiema studies elder maltreatment through focus groups, in-depth interviews, surveys, and panel data. She regularly collaborates with financial institutions, the AARP, FINRA Foundation, and federal protection agencies to analyze victimization risk factors and to test efforts to inoculate consumers from fraud and abuse through enhanced consumer education and advance care planning interventions.
