About this Event

Americans have a hard time talking openly and honestly about the topic of sex. When it comes to sexual intimacy among older adults, it is a subject people simply don’t talk about. This silence allows misconceptions and myths to flourish – including the widespread assumption that older adults lose interest in sex and intimacy and are, or should be, asexual.

Agenda:

8:30AM Check-in

9:00AM Welcome

9:30AM The Heart Has No Wrinkles, Joanne Alba, Planned Parenthood

11:00AM STDs Over 60, Raj Gill, Public Health

11:30AM Interactive Audience Activity

12:00PM Closing

It is important to open up our conversations about sexuality in later-life. Department of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS) promotes the sexual health of older adults through education for seniors and training for professionals. DAAS affirms and respects the important role that sexuality and intimacy play in the lives of many, well beyond their middle age.

Free CEUs available for attendance.
