Special symposia in May (Pre-registration required)
5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 10, Hospice & Community Care: Gen Silent, a documentary film about LGBT aging, will be shown, followed by a discussion with Stu Maddux, the film’s producer/director. This documentary sheds light on the unique issues facing LGBT elders and allows professionals, activists, older people and young to better realize that we each need care with understanding and compassion. The documentary shows how older lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender adults have been forced to hide their sexual orientation in order to receive appropriate care. Dinner at 5:30 p.m.; event begins promptly at 6 p.m. Location: Hospice & Community Care, 685 Good Drive. Since space is limited, registration is restricted to physicians, NPs and PAs on a first-come, first-served basis. Register here.
