Region VII Area Agency on Aging is proud to be sponsoring a small group workshop on Improving Aging Services for LGBT, Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual or Transgender Older Adults. The program will be presented by Judy Lewis, a certified trainer with the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging, from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. on July 14 at 1615 S. Euclid Ave. in Bay City. The program is free, reservations are required and lunch will be provided.
A resource round table and community conversation will follow the workshop from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Community organizations and allies are encouraged to bring information and materials about services and programs that may be relevant to LGBT older adults and ideas on how to improve efforts when serving this population. This is about increasing knowledge and skills, critically analyzing personal and professional attitudes about sexual orientation and gender identity and aging.
As workshop space is limited, and reservations are required, please respond to Annette Jeske at Region VII AAA by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone: 989-893-4506.
Improving services for LGBT older adults is a priority of the Older Americans Act, and a goal in the current Annual Implementation Plan. The agency has connected with the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging which seeks to improve the quality of services and support offered to LGBT older adults nationwide.
