How To Be A Sex-Positive Healthcare Provider

Thursday, March 14th — 7:30 p.m. — $25

Evelin DackerSexuality is often disregarded when assessing our patient’s health and happiness. Our own personal values, lack of knowledge, and discomfort around talking about sex are barriers to obtaining a holistic understanding of our patients. As the #MeToo movement, gender concerns, and the diversification of relationship and sexual styles become more prominent in our culture, it is important that we become more aware of how to navigate these changes. This class taught by Evelin Dacker, MD will help address and educate medical providers and healthcare professionals on becoming comfortable and successful in addressing the sexual concerns of our patients and provide tools to do so.

Evelin Dacker, MD is a sex-positive primary care doctor. She is board certified in Family Medicine and has a board certification in Holistic and Integrative Medicine, and a certification from the Institute for Functional Medicine. She specializes in Womenโ€™s Health, hormones, nutrition, and sexual healing. She is also the C.E.O of Sex Positive Portland and teaches classes on how to communicate with sexual partners (see maketimeforthetalk.com), sexually transmitted infections without shame, and personal boundaries and Consent.
