Dan Stewart
Associate Director, Aging Equity Project, NRC @National Resource Center on LGBT Aging
As Associate Director of the Aging Equality Project, Dan Stewart manages the Long-Term Care Equality Index (LEI). The LEI, built in partnership with SAGE and HRC, addresses the concerns of LGBTQ older adults seeking long-term care. This is done by working with LTC communities to commit to providing culturally competent care and support their work to do so. Organizations will be supported by better understanding LGBTQ-inclusive policy and procedures. This will ultimately lead to a tool for LGBTQ individuals to find supportive communities. Prior to his role at HRC, Dan served as the SAGE Program Coordinator for PROMO, a statewide program providing services and advocacy for LGBTQ elders in Missouri.
