Britney Wardecker, PhD, Assistant Professor, College of Nursing

Speaker Bio:

Dr. Wardecker received her Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Michigan in 2016 and subsequently began training as an NIA-funded T32 Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for Healthy Aging at Penn State. As an Assistant Professor of Nursing with multidisciplinary training in Psychology, Public Health, and Biobehavioral Health, she pulls from theoretical frameworks in these fields to investigate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) older adults’ psychological and physical health outcomes.

Presentation description:

This presentation will discuss lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) older adults, heterosexism, and homophobia. Following the presentations, attendees will be able to describe the status of older LGBTQ adults’ health in the United States and identify some social and biological factors that contribute to this community’s health disparities.
