Pennsylvania's Department of Aging has announced its 2018 LGBTQ Aging Summit.

The summit's gaol is to further the dialogue throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania around LGBT senior issues. Organizers predict discussions will dig into unique challenges and areas of concern that LGBTQ elders in Pennsylvania face as they age. Topics may include housing, caregiving, community engagement, health care, and policy and legislative issues.

The event will feature speakers who will provide national, state, and local perspectives.

The event is planned for Oct. 9, 10 at the Sherton of Harrisburg.
