Having coped with a lifetime of discrimination and stigma, LGBT older adults face unique barriers to accessing sensitive and effective health care and services. This webinar, led by geriatrician and educator Mark Simone-Skidmore, MD, familiarized participants with the major clinical and psychosocial issues facing LGBT older adults, and offered recommended ways that health centers and other health care agencies can provide culturally sensitive care in an inclusive environment to aging LGBT patients. This webinar was the first in a three-part series on LGBT aging co-sponsored by the National LGBT Health Education Center and SAGE.
