Robert-Garofalo-BP.jpgOn May 12, 2011, Robert Garofalo, MD, MPH, delivered the second annual John Money Lecture in Pediatric Sexology at the University of Minnesota. In his presentation, "Advancing the Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Youth," Garofallo discussed the process and findings of the recent Institutes of Medicine Committee Report, The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People. He summarized and contextualized the state of the science as it exists for LGBT youth and as suggested by the IOM, offered a paradigm for the next generation of academic work for this vulnerable population.

Dr. Garofalo is an associate professor of pediatrics and preventive medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He is also an attending physician at Children's Memorial Hospital where he directs the Adolescent/Young Adult HIV Program. Dr. Garofalo is a national authority on LGBT health issues, adolescent sexuality, and HIV clinical care and prevention. He has been the principal investigator on five National Institute of Medicine (NIH) and two Centers for Disease Control and Prevention funded research grants and serves as a co-investigator on three additional NIH-funded projects. He is the past president of the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association. In 2010, Dr. Garofalo served as a committee member for the National Academy of Sciences/Institute of Medicine Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health Issues and Research Gaps and Opportunities.

Joycelyn Elders, MD, was present as the lecture discussant.

John Money's family established the John W. Money Endowed Fund at the Program in Human Sexuality which provides funding for the John Money Lecture in Pediatric Sexology hosted at the Program in Human Sexuality and the John Money Plenary at the Biennial World Conference of Sexual Health sponsored by the World Association for Sexual Health.

Kevin-Fenton-BP.jpgOn June 12, 2011, Kevin Fenton, MD, PhD, delivered the second John Money Plenary at the 20th World Congress for Sexual Health in Glasgow, UK. The title of his presentation was "A Public Health Approach to Advancing Sexual Health in the United States: Accomplishments, opportunities, and lessons learned."

Fenton is the director of the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP). In November 2005, Fenton was named director of the National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention, which was renamed NCHHSTP in March 2007 to reflect the addition of CDC's Viral Hepatitis program. He previously served as chief of CDC's National Syphilis Elimination Effort since January 2005. He has worked in research, epidemiology, and the prevention of HIV and other STDs since 1995 and was previously the Director of the HIV and STI Department at the United Kingdom's Health Protection Agency. Fenton has spearheaded the development of a number of national HIV, STD and behavioral surveillance and research programs in the UK and Western Europe including the National Chlamydia Screening Program in England, the 2nd British National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles and the European Surveillance of STI (ESSTI) Network. He is a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom.
