LGBTQ Elder Toolkit: CAN-NC is creating a LGBTQ Elder Toolkit utilizing interviews from the “Then & Now: exploring LGBTQ stories across generations” documentary and supplemental printed materials to educate healthcare staff and other aging service providers about the issues facing older people who identify as LGBTQ in our state.  The Toolkit will feature  the 30 minute Then & Now documentary followed by short segments on specific topics such as terminology, discrimination, family, religion, and legal issues. An accompanying booklet will include questions for discussion as well as stats, common myths, resources and more. The Toolkit and associated training program by CAN-NC staff will launch in the spring of 2015. For more information contact Lia Miller at [email protected] or 336-253-0856.
