Next 50 is taking care of our elders


“I’m particularly interested in helping LGBTQ individuals, and particularly the older population, just given the disparities they face,” said Carey Candrian, [assistant professor of medicine at the CU School of Medicine and] co-director of the Next 50 Initiative with Hillary Lum, [assistant professor of medicine at CU School of Medicine]. “Older LGBTQ individuals are more likely to go back into the closet, and many are living in poverty and less likely to have kids, be married, or have caregivers. They are more likely to live alone and be lonely.”
