LGBT Aging, Memory Care and Dementia, Bergson, Contemporary Continental Philosophy, Feminist Care Ethics

Current Projects

I am working on two different projects. First, a philosophical examination of the roots and impacts of ageism in contemporary American culture. Second, an examination of how to design cultural competency training for care providers working with members of sexual and gender minorities who are experiencing Alzheimer's and related dementias.

In addition to my academic work I blog and write about LGBT aging, aging activism, intergenerational coalition building, and many other topics. As part of my work at SAGE and The National Resource Center on LGBT Aging I write cultural competency training curricula and resources for both LGBT and aging service providers.
