Posters a Hit!

by Lisa Neremberg

Word got around about the World Elder Abuse Awareness Day posters designed by a class at City College of San Francisco. I've had 1,000 guests visit my blog this month to check them out, and the City College folks had requests for the artwork from all over the world. The posters have been shown by agencies in the US, Australia, and Canada, and they even made an appearance at the World Health Organization's event in Geneva, Switzerland. Georgia's Department of Human Services had them emailed to all the supervisors across the state, and they will be displayed at a conference for California Long Term Care Ombudsmen in the spring.

"It was rewarding to work on such a meaningful project. The students and I learned much about a topic that we were hardly aware of. We are very happy that our work was met with such enthusiasm."

Regina Rowland, Professor of Graphic Communications, City College of San Francisco

"It's great to see that our hard work has had such a good reception and taken on a life of it's own after we finished working on it."

Clinton Froehlich, Student Project Director
