LGBTQ+ Aging in Canada: What Can We Learn from the CLSA? 12:00 pm
LGBTQ+ Aging in Canada: What Can We Learn from the CLSA? @ Online
Oct 29 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
This webinar will be presented by Dr. Arne Stinchcombe, assistant professor in the Master of Applied Gerontology (MAG) program at Brock University, and Dr. Kimberley Wilson, assistant professor in Adult Development & Aging in the Department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition at the University of Guelph, via WebEx. Canada’s older adult population is becoming increasingly diverse. In order to respond to the needs of diverse aging communities, we must understand their health status and its determinants. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) communities consist of individuals with distinct socio-historical contexts that often involve minority stress experiences (e.g., stigma and discrimination) associated with health in older age. The presentation will describe the socio-historical context of LGBTQ+ older adults in Canada and highlight some of the findings from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA). In particular, presenters will present data showing health disparities among sexual minority participants in the CLSA as well as data that highlight the importance of social networks. Implications for policy and practice will be discussed. This webinar is hosted by the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging.
