Several members of the Sexuality and Aging Consortium offer professional development for healthcare providers seeking to more effectively engage patients in conversations about sexuality. Others focus on training staff at senior living facilities. For referrals to these members, please call 610-388-5062 or email us at saconsotrium@widener.edu.
