To PFLAG Cincinnati --

Our speaker on Tuesday (Aug 9) will be Dr. Christopher Bolling.

Christopher Bolling, MD is a pediatrician in Northern Kentucky and is one of the founding members of Pediatric Associates, the largest pediatric practice in the state of Kentucky. In addition to caring for many patients in his practice, Chris is also very involved in the prevention and treatment of pediatric obesity on the local, state and national level. In Chris' words, "the issues facing obese youth and GLBT youth are often very similar. They are issues of health, happiness and acceptance."

Chris and his spouse, Stephen Peterson, have been supporters of PFLAG for many years and are active in the GLBT community through HRC, Equality
Cincinnati and many other organizations. They have also been involved in many faith based and community based charities as board members and supporters. They both believe strongly in giving back to Cincinnati, a city they love and live in by choice.
