Training To Serve: LGBTQ+ Aging
August 12, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm$45
Older adults in the LGBTQ+ community have unique needs and experiences. Learn how to best serve them!
In order to maintain social isolation while continuing to offer high-quality courses, we will be offering this training online via Zoom. You will receive a link to join the zoom webinar at least 1 day before the start of the course.
This 2-hour training is designed for individuals seeking to learn about the unique needs of the aging LGBTQ+ community. Starting with the basics, we will review the differences between sex, gender, and sexuality, and the language used to discuss each. We will explore how history, politics, and HIV have had a profound impact on the experiences of older LGBTQ+ people. Finally, we will explore the disparities faced by this population and how we can best serve them.
