JustUs Health is working to improve services for LGBT seniors
In November 2018, Training to Serve and JustUs Health have joined forces to continue delivering education to service providers across Minnesota.
Since 2008, Training to Serve has worked to improve the quality of life of LGBT people as they age. Education programs offer dynamic, culturally-responsive trainings on LGBT aging and dementia to healthcare and other service providers. This work has benefited thousands of LGBT older adults and family caregivers.
This important aging program will now 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.
