We conclude our journey into sex, sexuality, and gender throughout the lifespan with a one-day intensive workshop consisting of four case vignettes that incorporate many of the themes we have touched on in prior series. Faculty will describe each case narrative in detail, after which the entire group (participants plus the faculty panel) will have an open discussion to explore the salient issues of the case and answer questions.
