Events & Happenings

Over the last year, many of us have struggled to maintain healthy habits as we have shifted our lives to socially distant ourselves. As we transition into new times, it is important to create new habits and take the time to care for ourselves. We hope that these workshops will inspire you to take initiative of your health by implementing small changes that can have a big impact.

AGING IN COMMUNITY: LESSONS LEARNED THROUGH THE RESILIENCE OF LGBTQ ADULTS WITH KAREN FREDRIKSEN GOLDSEN
Thursday June 17, 6:00 pm
Virtual Presentation

Most older LGBTQ adults came of age in a society that didn’t see or accept them. As a result, it took courage to flourish. Dr. Karen Fredriksen Goldsen joins us to share the valuable lessons of resilience uncovered by her landmark research on LGBTQ elders. During the event, she’ll shine a light on how the care and connection of community can empower us to overcome the challenges we face as individuals.
