By BBN Staff:In celebration of Women’s month, the National Council on Ageing (NCA) with the support of the Western Health Region will be holding a one day Sexual Health and Ageing Workshop.
The workshop is aimed at women 50 years and older. The event will be held tomorrow at the George Price Center in Belmopan starting at 8:30 a.m.
It will be a comprehensive sexual health session where women will discuss normal changes that occur through aging and tips on how to maintain good sexual health and education on sexually transmitted infections.
“Older persons are often left out of the discussion that focuses around sexual health and this workshop offers a unique opportunity to discuss the needs of this vulnerable population,” a release stated.
Following the workshop at 1:30 p.m. there will be free medical screenings available including breast exam, cervical screening and BMI checks.
Participation in the workshop is by registration only.
Interested persons can contact the National Council on Ageing at 822-1546/ [email protected] to register.
