LUNGREN, ACTRESS BETTY WHITE TO DISCUSS ELDER ABUSE ON SET OF NEW FILM
 "Golden Girls" star Betty White and Attorney General Dan Lungren will discuss the problem of elder abuse on the set of a new film produced by the Attorney General's Crime Prevention Center and featuring White.
 The media availability will take place immediately prior to filming at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 14 at the Carthay Stage, 5907 West Pico Blvd. (one block west of Fairfax) in Los Angeles.
 Elder abuse refers to crimes and other forms of mistreatment directed at the elderly. A recent federal study indicates that one out of every 20 senior citizens will be a victim of physical, psychological or financial abuse this year.
 The production of the video film "Lifeline...Recognizing and Reporting Elder Abuse" is the centerpiece of a new California Department of Justice public education and awareness campaign to address this growing problem. Betty White has agreed to donate her time and talents to the film.
