March Forward with an Eye on the Past: Welcoming LGBT Older Adults at Pride

Columbia 2

Join us to discuss the ways that your pride events can not only become more LGBT older Adult friendly, but to learn simple ways that you can encourage participation from the segment of the community that paved the way for our being able to have Pride! Through discussion and small group activities we will not only make you more aware of why keeping our LGBT Older Adults active in your celebrations, you will come away with a distinct understanding as to why it is necessary.

“If I had known…”– Long Term HIV/AIDS Survivor Syndrome

Columbia 5

30+ years ago, a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS was a “death sentence”; now it is a “manageable disease”. “If I had known…” addresses concerns for People Living With HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). To move toward an end of this pandemic, a prerequisite exists in which those who are considered Long Term Survivors of HIV/AIDS are supported and assisted as they continue to live their lives as fully as possible. Presentation participants will secure a level of knowledge and understanding of the mental health essences of Long Term Survivors. Additionally, participants will have hands-on experience in developing strategies to address the needs required to address the continued stigmatization.

Presenter(s): W. Allen Pittinger-Dunham, LICSW, CAC-II, NCC AP-MAC
