Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County is presenting, Age is Not a Condom: Sexual Health After Age 40, on Tuesday, September 17 from 5:30 - 8:00 pm at the Dayton Metro Library, 215 E. Third St. Dayton.
The forum will feature a presentation by nationally recognized speaker Ulysses Burley III who will discuss how we can move beyond stigma into a more sex-positive consciousness as people live and love longer. He will also discuss the social stigma surrounding sexually transmitted diseases and HIV and how healthcare providers may unknowingly perpetuate that stigma.
“As we live and love longer in life, our sexual health must continue to be a focus,” said Jerry Mallicoat, LGBTQ Health Initiatives Project Manager for Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people over 40 represent 30% of new HIV cases. In addition, cases of syphilis and gonorrhea have seen between a 50 and 130% increase in recent years for those 45 and older.
The event is free and registrations can be made on the Public Health website at www.phdmc.org.
