John Money created an endowment at PHS to support a plenary lecture at the World Congress of Sexual Health sponsored by the World Association for Sexual Health (WAS). On June 24, 2009, the first lecture was held as Anke Ehrhardt, PhD, presented "Gender, Youth, and Partner Choice" at the 19th World Congress for Sexual Health in Göteborg, Sweden. In the spirit of John Money, Ehrhardt appealed for a public health approach to sexual issues and the support of sexual rights.
Ehrhardt is the Vice Chair for Academic Affairs and a Professor of Medical Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Columbia University and has been the Director of the HIV Center since its beginning in 1987. She is an internationally known researcher in the field of sexual and gender development of children, adolescents, and adults. In 1972, along with Money, she published the landmark book Man & Woman, Boy & Girl: Gender Identity from Conception to Maturity. For the past 25 years, her research has included a wide range of studies on determinants of sexual risk behavior among children, adolescents, heterosexual women and men, and the gay population, and on comprehensive approaches to preventing HIV and STD infection.
