  2. SAVE THE DATE – LGBTQ Aging Summit

    Pennsylvania’s Inaugural LGBTQ AGING SUMMIT will be held on October 9-10, 2018 at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel.  The summit’s theme is:

    Connecting Communities & Inspiring Change

    Led by a dedicated LGBTQ Aging Planning Committee, the committee aims to build off the success of the 2016 LGBT Elder Summit that was facilitated by the LGBT Elder Initiative.  The inaugural summit will further dialogue what needs to occur in communities throughout the commonwealth, encouraging all stakeholders to imagine what would be possible in a world where every health and human service provider is culturally competent and sensitive to the needs of LGBTQ seniors.  The summit will also focus on diving deeper into the unique challenges and areas of concern that LGBTQ elders in Pennsylvania face as they age in place, including housing, caregiving, community engagement, healthcare, policy, and legislative issues.  PDA is excited about the efforts underway that will ensure the summit includes informed speakers who will provide national, state, local, and consumer perspectives.

    Mark your calendars and join us for this important conversation that will promote a better understanding of the LGBTQ elder landscape in Pennsylvania.
