Aging With Pride and the Future of LGBTQ Health
June 6 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Despite the adversity of their lives (or perhaps because of it) LGBTQ elders display remarkable resilience and resistance—yet many remain at high risk of health problems and socioeconomic disparity.
To share insight on this phenomenon and explore ways we can support our LGBTQ elders, UW School of Social Work Professor Karen Goldsen joins us to share important lessons learned about longevity and health from the landmark project, Aging with Pride: National Health, Aging and Sexuality/Gender Study.
Dr. Fredriksen-Goldsen is a nationally and internationally recognized scholar addressing equity and the intersections of aging, health disparities, and well-being in resilient at-risk communities.
