The Elder Law Clinic at Wake Forest University School will co-host, “Healthy LGBTQ Aging: Strategies for Success,” on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. (EDT) at Parkway United Church of Christ, 2151 Silas Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem, N.C. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required by Sept. 16.

In addition to Parkway United Church of Christ, the event is co-sponsored by the Shepherd’s Center and the Adam Foundation.

Learn about valuable legal rights and hear from a panel of LGBTQ health care providers, who will talk about successfully navigating the world of health care. A panel, moderated by Dee Leahman from Novant Health, will include a physician (Dr. Kaycee Sink), a social worker (Diane Spaugh) and a mental health counsellor (Burch Johnson).

“Please join us for an evening of learning and fellowship,”  says Professor Kate Mewhinney, director of the Elder Law Clinic.

The event is made possible by a grant from the Raleigh-based North Carolina Society of Health Care Attorneys (NCSHCA).  The grant funds community outreach regarding the health care rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) people.
