HUMAN SEXUALITY: UNDERSTANDING THE NEW PARADIGM
Ian Aaronson, Distinguished Emeritus Professor, Medical University of South Carolina
Monday 23–Tuesday 24 January
COURSE FEES R220
We are presently witnessing a profound societal change in which the full spectrum of sexual differences, beyond the traditional male/female construct, are being openly discussed and increasingly accepted.
The first lecture will define these differences and place them in their cultural and historical context. We will then critically examine the current evidence hinting at their possible biological or environmental causes.
The second lecture, by contrast, will describe the well-defined missteps in the developing human embryo which lead to the formation of external genitalia which have an ambiguous appearance. The work-up of such infants will then be described, designed to pinpoint the precise underlying cause, which in turn largely dictates the recommendations given to the parents regarding management.
1. LGBTQ: the spectrum of human sexuality explained
2. The investigation and management of the new-born with ambiguous genitalia
Please note that it is the request of this lecturer to present his course to a masked audience. KN95 masks will be provided at the door of the lecture theatre.
