This week we cover a few topics that affect us as we age. We have the great pleasure to have Dr. Mitchell Tepper, a sexologist who focuses on sex and disabilities on our show this week. Mitch discusses his research and an extraordinary documentary he and Dr. Mark Schoen are creating called, “Love After War.” It’s an in-depth look into the lives of active duty service members and veterans who have returned home with physical and/or psychological health challenges that are creating difficulties in their intimate and sexual lives as they age. Here’s a link to the film so you can see the trailer. Another excellent resource on sexuality and health disparities that Mitch discussed is The Morehouse Center for Excellence for Sexual Health. And please write to Mitch if you’re interested in any of the articles he cited.

Continuing our exploration into Black History Month, we translate some recent research results about Black women’s sexuality and aging from Dr. Erika Evans-Weaver, whose doctoral research results can be found at the Widener University Wolfgram Memorial Library.
