LGBT older adults have unique psychosocial needs, including differing social support networks, family structures, risk for isolation, and resiliency. This webinar, led by Hilary Meyer, and Dr. Manuel Eskildsen, summarized relevant research on these issues, and familiarized health care providers and administrators with the services and programs available to address these needs. The speakers also explained how current policies affect the lives and health outcomes of LGBT older adults. This webinar was the second in a three-part series on LGBT aging co-sponsored by the National LGBT Health Education Center and SAGE.
