JustUs Health and Training to Serve have joined forces to improve services for LGBT seniors
Training to Serve’s nationally recognized LGBT aging curriculum has moved to JustUs Health.
Since 2008, Training to Serve has worked to improve the quality of life of LGBT people as they age. The program offers dynamic, culturally-responsive trainings on LGBT aging and dementia to healthcare and other service providers. Training to Serve’s work has benefited thousands of LGBT older adults and family caregivers.
Training to Serve's move to JustUs Health will mean an expansion of that program's work. This important aging program will be able to take advantage of JustUs Health's research capabilities, expand the work to include communities affected by HIV, and add capacity to train exponentially more professionals about LGBT aging.

As we integrate this work, we need your continued support. Please join us on Tuesday, August 27 for our Training to Serve / JustUs Health Annual Benefit! Buy tickets via Eventbrite.
Community Conversations on Aging
We periodically hold discussions in the LGBT community centered on the topic of aging. Our spring community meeting was held in April. We've compiled the notes from that meeting and have them listed here:
Our next meeting will build on the conversations in April and will focus on how LGBT older adults fit into community conversations about creating a community space. The next session is scheduled for July 23.
