LGBT Aging Project Joins Fenway

The LGBT Aging Project, New England's premier organization for programs & advocacy for LGBT older adults will become an affiliate of Fenway Health, Boston’s LGBT medical center effective July 1st. The LGBT Aging Project will become part of Fenway's research, education & policy division, The Fenway Institute. This new affiliation will reinforce the commitment of both the LGBT Aging Project & Fenway Health to the growing LGBT older adult community. Lisa Krinsky, Director of the LGBT Aging Project stated, "The LGBT Aging Project will maintain its mission, identity & staff with the Fenway Institute as our new home. We are excited to join the Fenway family & to grow our programs to positively impact the lives of larger numbers of LGBT older adults & caregivers. We are equally excited to help Fenway expand their work in LGBT aging." Stephen L. Boswell, MD, Fenway Health President & CEO added, "Fenway is extremely excited by this partnership. As more members of our community reach their 50s, 60s, 70s & beyond, care & services for LGBT older adults are going to be increasingly important. We look forward to working with the staff of the LGBT Aging Project on growing their programs & tapping into their expertise to help Fenway better serve our elders." We’re all aging so this is great news for our senior LGBT community in New England that has recently become a gay marriage zone…:)
