Through the generous support of many donors, this endowed lectureship was created to honor Catherine Geering’s dedication to midlife women’s health, especially sexual health, her support of the Women’s Center, and her friendship and support of Dr. Larkin.

Catherine was a well-known labor and delivery nurse for 30 years and in mid-life decided to go back to school and purse a Master of Science degree in nursing from the University of Cincinnati. This led her to her most recent role as a women’s health nurse practitioner at the UC Health Women’s Center. Not long after starting at the Women’s Center, Catherine’s passion quickly became women’s sexual health and menopause management after she realized how women suffer in silence. She was instrumental in developing and launching the sexual health and menopause program at the Women’s Center.
