Our healthcare system is confusing, difficult, and time consuming to navigate, especially for LGBTQ+ people. Finding adequate healthcare providers, locating accurate information on living healthy lives, and being able to safely have open conversations about our health concerns can often be challenging. Having support on how to best get your health needs answered, as well as learn more information about your health, is a great resource for those of all ages that William Way hopes to provide! 

However, when it comes to the health needs of adults older than 50, it requires more specific attention, which is why the William Way Elder Initiative runs The Doctor Is In series. Through The Doctor Is In series, attendants can learn more about how to best address and care for their health needs with the help of Dr. Danielewicz, Director of Pride Care at the Jefferson Center for Healthy Aging. At noon, every second Wednesday of the month, Dr. Danielewicz and other guest speakers will be leading conversations on various health topics to better the public’s understanding of federal health programs, mitigate concerns about maintaining one’s health through the years, and answer questions that come with aging. 

On August 14th, 2024 at 12pm, we will be kicking off the series with conversation on Sexual Health and Wellness at the William Way LGBT Community Center, located at 1315 Spruce St (corner of Spruce St and Juniper St). The series is specifically centered around older LGBTQ+ adults, so you get to receive information and health + wellness support that is directly tailored to suit you! Some of our upcoming events will be on Medicare Navigation, Medication Management with a Geriatric Pharmacologist, Nutrition, Hospice + Palliative Care, and Mobility + Function with Occupational Therapist Doctoral Students.

Make sure to stay tuned and we hope to see you there!
