LGBT Older Adults: Supporting their unique health and social needs

Currently, many lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender (LGBT) adults are experiencing the most social acceptance in U.S. history. At the same time, however, many LGBT elders are facing the challenges of aging and alienation from family and friends. This conference addresses the health and wellness needs of LGBT older adults and offers health professionals helpful information about working effectively with this at-risk group. Attendees will be introduced to SAGE Cleveland (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders) and have the opportunity to learn from the wisdom of a panel of LGBT elders. The conference concludes with the annual Katz Policy Lecture presented by Michael Adams, Chief Executive Officer of SAGE USA.
