Theresa Clark, professional practice adjunct faculty, presented “Tips and Techniques for Providing Services to HIV+ Seniors and LGBT older adults” at the T.E.A.M Conference in Bethlehem, Pa., at the Sexuality and Aging Consortium Annual Conference at Widener University, and at the PA Housing Finance Administration Philly Forum. She also presented “Bisexuality and Aging: What We Know, What We Don’t, and What’s the Difference?” and “The ABCs of LGBT Older Adults and Best Practices for Optimal Care” at the Mid-Atlantic Professional Geriatric Care Managers Conference.

In addition to these presentations, Clark led several workshops and webinars over the course of the year. Additionally, Clark published on the featured topic of “Bisexuality and Aging” on the American Society on Aging’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Aging Interests Network Blog as a Co-Editor.  

She also served as a blog contributor for ActionAIDS, publishing “Why We Need National HIV and Aging Awareness Day.”

Clark’s research and contributions to the LGBT public health field have culminated in her certification as a trainer for the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging. The organization is affiliated with SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) and provides training and technical assistance nationwide to insure that aging services are inclusive and supportive for LGBT older adults.
