The Catherine Geering Community Sexual Health Lecture is an annual event honoring the memory of Catherine Geering – a nurse practitioner and tireless women’s health advocate who was passionate about sexual health and mid-life health issues. The event is the vision of Lisa Larkin, MD, who worked side-by-side with Geering to raise the standard of care for women in this area of unmet medical need. The Geering Lecture honors the professional contributions and efforts she made throughout the Greater Cincinnati community.
