An initiative to improve the quality of care for LGBT older adults in Rhode Island has been made possible by a grant to SAGE/Rhode Island from the Rhode Island Foundation through the Equity Action Fund. Recognizing that LGBT elders comprise a distinctly disadvantaged population, a series of workshops will be offered to convey knowledge and best practice skills for meeting the needs of this growing but often invisible and underserved minority.
