    Event Description:
    Everyone deserves respect and dignity. Come learn about the issues faced by older LGBTQ+ adults and how to better care for them as they age. About this Event Presenting sponsor, The Auberge, along with Mir Care Consultants, Inc. and other community partners are excited to host Dallas-based nonprofit, EDUCARE Inc.’s Bridge Building Network, in providing an all-day workshop, panel discussion, and viewing of the documentary film "Gen Silent". The event will take place on Tuesday, October 29th at First Baptist Church in downtown Austin. The event will be comprised of community members, healthcare advocates, and representatives from the LGBTQ+ community in Austin. We will be discussing issues faced by older LGBTQ+ adults and the resources available to them as well as facilitate an open discussion about how to best support older LGBTQ+ adults as they age. The workshop will be geared toward guiding and educating healthcare professionals in becoming more welcoming to the older adult LGBTQ+ community. We believe that with cultural competency and increased compassion, we can improve the lives of the people in our care. This program will offer continuing education credits for various professions as well as certificates of attendance. We look forward to seeing you there!
