Abstract (Summary)

Older adults face serious sexual health disparities resulting in part from factors such as stereotypical misconceptions concerning older adult sexuality. The purpose of this project was to write a grant and locate a potential funding source to develop an online sexual health education program for older adults in Southern California who engage in online dating. A literature review was conducted to determine the unique needs of this demographic and to understand the barriers to testing and care for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

The principal goal of the program is to increase participants’ knowledge of STI risks and safer sex practices. Research revealed a paucity of information on this topic and highlighted the dire need for the project. The Archstone Foundation was selected as a potential funding source. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
