““The LGBT community has stepped up in the past to address coming out, AIDS, and civil rights. The next wave has to be aging.””
Caring and Aging with Pride was funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute on Aging (NIA). It is the first national federally-funded project to examine LGBT aging and health. The report addresses several topics including: health disparities, resilience, physical health, mental health, healthcare access, health behaviors, services and programs, HIV, caregiving and suggested policy improvements.
